Think about trying the Problem of the Week

Correspondence:  The easiest way to get a hold of me is by e-mail (estervig@iastate.edu).  Please feel free to e-mail anytime. It will help me keep things straight if you write Math 166 in the subject line.  Get in the habit of writing professional e-mails to instructors (i.e. include a subject, don’t include spelling errors/abbreviations, be respectful).  This will be a useful skill for getting and keeping a job once you graduate (and will result in better responses in college too).

Resources for Calculus Help:
Come to an office hour!
Go to the Math Help Room

Hire a tutor from the Academic Success Center

This list of Trigonometric integrals might be useful to check your work.

I posted a chapter from another book on Strategies for Integration under "Course Content" on WebCT.  This includes a long list of practice problems.

I just was told about a website that you might find useful.  It is called The Khan Acadamy.  It has a bunch of youtube videos explaining various concepts, including many that we are doing in Calc II.  It is free so it might be worth checking out.
