Reduction Formulas for Integrals

The use of reduction formulas is one of the standard techniques of integration taught in a first-year calculus course. This Demonstration shows how substitution, integration by parts, and algebraic manipulation can be used to derive a variety of reduction formulas. Selecting the "illustrate with fixed " box lets you see how the reduction formulas are used for small values of and shows more detail for the algebraic manipulations needed for some of the examples.
