Within Mathematica you can call WolframAlpha WolframAlpha["e^2 x cos(3x)", IncludePods -> {"Indefinite Integral"}, PodStates -> {"Step-by-step solution", "Show all steps"}] Compare with Integrate[E^2 x Cos[3 x], x] // Simplify Bob Hanlon On Sun, Dec 9, 2012 at 10:59 AM, <anzatzi at gmail.com> wrote: > Hi. By way of response to other posters, both Wolfram alpha (the web 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. >
