    The purpose of this lesson is to learn how to find an antiderivative. This is also known as an indefinite integral of a function. Differentiation, indefinite integration, and definite integration are all compared side by side for several functions. Several examples are done in this lesson, including some more complicated trig and square root functions in which the chain rule comes into play, and you have to compensate for this by altering the integral.
