In this first "Slide" from an Online chat we use the Power Rule for Integration.
Since the derivative of xn = n xn-1 We reverse this for integration.

Notice below that the integral of x2 is (1/3) x3.

The iff in this slide means "if and only if".

Notes from the Nov. 4th Pitt chat.

Here are a few notes on integrating a polynomial function:

When we integrate xn we get

xn+1 --------- n+1

Use this power rule and the following to break apart the polynomial into terms. 1. The integral of a sum is the sum of the integrals. 2. The integral of a constant times a function, is the constant times the integral of the function.
