Integrals with Odd Powers of Secant and Tangent

Students discuss what integrals can be taken that involve secants and tangents. They use a list of ten samples, and discuss each of them. Students use trig substitution using trig identities (tan^2+1=sec^2x and tan^2x=sec^2x-1). They work several examples as a class. Students work sample problems independently.
