Integral of $\cot(x)$
To integrate cot(x), recall that cot(x) = cos(x)/sin(x), so ∫ cot(x) dx = ∫ cos(x)/sin(x) dx. (...)

Integral of $\sin(x)\cos(x)$
The function $\sin(x)\cos(x)$ is one of the easiest functions to integrate. All you need to do is to use a simple substitution $u = (...)

Integral of $\sin^3(x)$
Integrating the third power of $\sin(x)$ (or any odd power, for that matter), is an easy task (unlike $∫ \sin^2(x)\,dx$, which requires (...)

Integral of $\sin^2(x)$
The integral can be calculated using integration by parts (remember that $∫u’(x)v(x)\,dx = u(x)v(x) - ∫ u(x)v’(x)\,dx$): $$ ∫ (...)
