IntegrationExercises on indefinite and definite integration of basic algebraic and trigonometric functions. 
This is level 8 ? Your answer should be a number (rounded to three significant figures if not exact) or a fraction in its lowest terms.
InstructionsTry your best to answer the questions above. Type your answers into the boxes provided leaving no spaces. As you work through the exercise regularly click the "check" button. If you have any wrong answers, do your best to do corrections but if there is anything you don't understand, please ask your teacher for help. When you have got all of the questions correct you may want to print out this page and paste it into your exercise book. If you keep your work in an ePortfolio you could take a screen shot of your answers and paste that into your Maths file.

Exam Style Questions  A collection of problems in the style of GCSE or IB/Alevel exam paper questions (worked solutions are available for Transum subscribers).
Differentiation  A multilevel set of exercises providing practice differentiating expressions
Use the ^ key to type in a power or index then the right arrow or tab key to end the power.
For example: Type 3x^2 to get 3x^{2}.
Use the forward slash / to type a fraction then the right arrow or tab key to end the fraction.
For example: Type 1/2 to get ½.
Fractions should be given in their lowest terms.
Answers to definite integral questions should be given as exact fractions or to three significant figures if the decimal answer does not terminate.
The following identities may also prove useful:
$$\sin^2x = \frac{1}{2}  \frac{1}{2} \cos 2x \text{ and } \cos^2x = \frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{2} \cos 2x$$Don't wait until you have finished the exercise before you click on the 'Check' button. Click it often as you work through the questions to see if you are answering them correctly. You can doubleclick the 'Check' button to make it float at the bottom of your screen.
