Some Additional Material On Integration (Ch.7)
(You're not responsible for it.)
The sections mentioned in the pdf files are Stewart, not Rogawski, so ignore them.

• pdf  Sometimes one cannot find an antiderivative but can evaluate the definite integral.  Here's and example.  ( You may want to read 7.7 of Rogawski first.)

• pdf  Calculus texts usually thrust error bounds on students without showing how to obtain them.  Here's a derivation of the error bound for the Trapezoidal Rule.  You'll need integration by parts (Rogawski 7.2) to read it.

• pdf  Calculus texts generally just give error bounds, which are great if you MUST have a bound on the error and can find the needed bound on the derivative.  (The latter will be impossible if the function values are given by a table.)  Usually it's better to have a good ESTIMATE of the error.  This file shows that it's easy to get.

• pdf  Rogawski discusses trigonometric integrals in Section 7.3, but he doesn't cover a method for reducing an integrand that is rational in trig functions to one that is rational, as some texts do.  This pdf file explains two ways to do that.
