Know: To evaluate the definite integral of a function without an infinite discontinuity over the interval [a, b], we use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. To do: extend the concept to functions with infinite discontinuities and allow the interval to be unbounded. - - 0 2 3 2 and 1 : Examples dx e dx x x
