### Antiderivatives. Section 003

Decent, straightforward selection of integrals, with different difficulty levels. I liked it. Two students managed to write integrals that didn't make sense, or integrals that need to be solved with techniques that are not taught in MATH 122. Those students will not get any credit, instead of lowering everybody's score for this part. A solid 5/5

### Antiderivatives. Section 019

The selection of this group was dissapointing. Very basic antiderivatives, without any real variation. Not representative of the depth and dificulty of the problems we have done in class. 2/5.

1. Find the following antiderivatives:
\begin{align} &\int x^5+x^{100}\, dx &&\int \frac{3}{x^{24}} + 3x^{-4} - 27x^3\, dx &&\int e^x - \frac{24}{x^{3/4}}\, dx \\ &\int \frac{x^2}{x^3+1}\, dx &&\int (x+1)\big( \tfrac{x^2}{2}+x \big)\, dx &&\int \frac{x-10}{x}\, dx \\ &\int 6x^2 e^{x^3}\, dx &&\int 4^{3x}\, dx &&\int (3x-2) (3x^2 -4x +5)^{26}\, dx \end{align}

### Antiderivatives. Sections 003 and 019

Both sections have done a great job at captuting the different skills and difficulty levels of this part of the course. I had to pick a selection of all the problems, to avoid repetition. If your particular problem has not been featured here, do not worry. You still got a 5/5.
