Mathematica itself is using state-of-the-art integration methods, which 
are often not the methods taught in calculus. Often, seeing the steps 
that Mathematica takes would be uninformative.

app) and Wolfram student assistant (ipad app) will show integration 
steps.  It is frustrating this is not in Mathematica, per se. Although 
Mathematica may occassionally employ integration solutions that are 
obscure, many of the problems I have done in student assistant have 
yeilded useful solutions.
