Integrating Combinations for AS & A-Level Maths

Part of AS & A-Level Maths For Dummies Cheat Sheet

When you have to integrate something more complicated than a simple expression for A-level maths, the chances are you’ll need to use one of the rules in this table, which shows you how to deal with a function when it has a linear argument, two terms added to or subtracted from each other, and the formula for integration by parts. In this table, a capital letter means “the integral of the lower-case letter” – so F is the integral of f, U is the integral of u, and V is the integral of v.


You also need to know about calculating a volume of revolution: Rotating the curve y=f(x) around the x-axis between limits of a and b gives you a volume of
