Mathematica itself is using stateoftheart integration methods, which are often not the methods taught in calculus. Often, seeing the steps that Mathematica takes would be uninformative.

Although Mathematica may occassionally employ integration solutions that are obscure, many of the problems I have done in student assistant have yeilded useful solutions.
