Algebraic Procedures
Using a variety of algebraic methods and trigonometry, and the above tables,
we can solve many integration problems.
Algebraic methods include
     making a simplifying substitution
     completing the square
     expanding a power
     eliminating a square root
     reducing an improper fraction
     separating a fraction
     multiplying by a form of 1

We need to know basic trigonometric identities like
