Natural Log Function-Integration

This Natural Log Function-Integration video also includes:

One of the strongest tools in integration is u-substitution, particularly when working with natural logs. In this step-by-step video presentation, a pleasant-voiced instructor walks through a number of integration problems. She begins with the basic application of the natural log as an anti-derivative and progresses through a number of more complicated examples, including one with polynomial synthetic division. A great tool to explain or re-explain how u-substitution and natural logs are linked in indefinite integration.

Instructional Ideas

  • Perfect for assigning as homework in a flipped-classroom model
  • Would make a good re-teaching video for individual remediation
Classroom Considerations

  • Consider creating a worksheet with the worked problems and having the class work along with the video
  • Make this a whole lesson by pausing the video and allowing the class some time for working and collaboration with each problem
  • While video is not YouTube linked, it does require streaming Internet access 
Pros

  • Carefully worked examples, with the ability to pause and rewind as needed for clarification
  • Examples scaffold in difficulty and complexity
  • U-substitution and using the natural log as an anti-derivative clearly identified in each problem
Cons

  • No accompanying student notes or worksheet
