### Introduction

Integration by Parts is a technique for integrating products of functions. In this Section you will learn to recognise when it is appropriate to use the technique and have the opportunity to practise using it for finding both definite and indefinite integrals.

#### Prerequisites

• understand what is meant by definite and indefinite integrals
• be able to use a table of integrals
• be able to differentiate and integrate a range of common functions

#### Learning Outcomes

• decide when it is appropriate to use the method known as integration by parts
• apply the formula for integration by parts to definite and indefinite integrals
• perform integration by parts repeatedly if appropriate
