# Partial fractions module

## Overview

After completing this section, students should be able to do the following.

- Understand how to break up fractions.
- Recognize integrals that are good candidates for the method of partial fractions.
- Use long-division to simplify rational expressions.
- Find the coefficients of partial fraction decomposition.
- Use partial fractions to integrate functions.

# Rational Functions

## Ximera Module

We discuss an approach that allows us to integrate rational functions.
