Linear Partial Fractions

Applying alternative techniques of integration such as partial fractions.

Mapped to AP College Board # FUN-6, FUN-6.F, FUN-6.F.1

Recognizing opportunities to apply knowledge of geometry and mathematical rules can simplify integration. For integrands requiring integration by linear partial fractions: (a) Determine indefinite integrals. (b) Evaluate definite integrals. Some rational functions can be decomposed into sums of ratios of linear, nonrepeating factors to which basic integration techniques can be applied.
