Lesson Plan: Integrals Resulting in Inverse Trigonometric Functions Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to evaluate integrals resulting in inverse trigonometric functions, such as ∫1/(1 + 𝑥²) d𝑥.
Students will be able to
- recognize integrands that integrate to the inverse trigonometric functions arcsin, arctan, and arcsec.
Students should already be familiar with
- the fundamental theorem of calculus,
- differentiation of trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions,
- integration by substitution.
Students will not cover
- integration by parts.
