    Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us
    so I came too take a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking andd will be tweeting this to my followers!
    Fantastic blog and brillliant design.

    Hi there! I am a prospective math major and I blog about musical theatre/Disney primarily (I know that probably does not interest you), BUT I have a feature on mathematics every two Mondays or so. You might wanna check that out on my blog!

    BTW this is a very common mistake I have seen among my peers. Other errors include misuse of integration by parts and not plucking in the derivative of the substitution when doing integration by substitution (they merely replace dx with du without doing anything else). When doing definite integral evaluations, they forget to change limits. Yeah, these are a few integration errors I can think of.

      Wow. That’s an interesting background. We have been contemplating on writing the first textbook on what we called “mental calculus”, but it takes a bit of time and effort.

    What is wrong with this integration technique?

    First, a few points: 1. [math](x^3)^2(x^2+1) = x^6 (x^2+1) = x^8 + x^6,[/math] not [math]x^{12} + x^6[/math]. 2. [math]{(x^{12} + x^6)}^{\frac{1}{2}} \ne x^{12\frac{1}{2}} + x^{6\frac{1}{2}} [/math](exponents can be distributed over products, but n…
