Hello friends! My university's math club is holding an integration bee in March, and I'm excited to participate in my first one!
I was sifting through their Facebook page for posts about last year's integration bee. The integration techniques they said all participants should know were:
They also take pics of a few integrals from the bee:
and the winning integral (which I believe is adapted from an integral from MIT's 2012 bee):
As a restraint, I scored a 5 on my AP Calculus BC exam last year. And so I ask: how can I study for an integration bee? And not only that, but what are some essential tricks/shortcuts/strategies/generalizations I can learn?
So far in my studying, I've derived three generalizations:
Thanks, everyone! Any and every piece of advice is appreciated! :)
