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

app) and Wolfram student assistant (ipad app) will show integration
steps. It is frustrating this is not in Mathematica, per se. Although
Mathematica may occassionally employ integration solutions that are
obscure, many of the problems I have done in student assistant have
yeilded useful solutions.
