|Lesson 18.2: A Script For Discovering an Indefinite Integral Rule|
In this lesson you will download and execute a script that develops another rule for finding antiderivatives. Once the script is on your TI-89 you can execute it to discover the indefinite integral rule by evaluating three types of indefinite integrals that each have the form . You will then be asked to find a general rule for indefinite integrals that have the same form.

Opening the Script
The variables submenu will display a list of all scripts stored in the TI-89.
The script intconst walks you through the discovery process of finding the general rule for by evaluating examples of the integrals shown below and predicting a general rule for each type:
You may want to record the results of the calculations for use in making a prediction. When prompted to make a prediction, write your response before proceeding to the next command.
The last comment in the script is
"Write a summary of what you have learned from these examples. Use a formula involving an integral."
