This innovative activity is designed for AP Calculus BC, and College Calculus 2. It is part of the unit, Techniques of Integration. In this activity, students use a Table of Integrals to integrate problems for which other methods are too difficult or do not exist.
For each of the eight problems, students match the problem from a table of Integrals, and use that formula to fully integrate the problem. In my own classes, we use tables from Cengage as we use the Larson text, Calculus with Early Transcendentals. I have included a reference / archival copy of that table, however the answer key can be adjusted to reflect the numbers that match the tables in your text.
After doing examples in class, I gave the worksheet to them to work on either alone or small groups, their choice. Some found it more challenging than they thought it would be. This was good. It should take about 45 minutes for them to finish, more or less depending upon your class. Many of the problems can be done without the tables and I had them do them both ways.
Also included is a set of fully typed student or teacher notes with three problems done step by step.
There is no reference to any particular table in these notes.
