MATH 141 LEARNING OBJECTIVES
:
Upon successful completion of Math 141, the student should be able to:
1.
Differentiate exponential, logarithmic, and inverse trigonometric functions.
2.
Integrate exponential, logarithmic, and inverse trigonometric functions.
3.
Recognize integrands for which integration by parts is appropriate.
4.
Use the formula to integrate by parts.
5.
Use techniques for integrals of products of sines and cosines.
6.
Use techniques for integrals of secants and tangents, and for cosecants and cotangents.
7.
Use techniques of trigonometric substitution to integrate various forms of integrands.
8.
Complete the square to express an irreducible quadratic polynomial as a sum or difference of squares.
9.
Perform polynomial long division to reduce an integrand to a more easily integrated form.
10.
Use the technique of partial fraction decomposition to reduce an integrand to a more easily integrated form.
