Sorry, but the arctangent is the antiderivative of the function. Math doesn't have multiple answers.

Since this question was asked over a month ago, the test was certainly turned in by now... otherwise I couldn't justify encouraging someone plagerize my work on a test. But since I'm sure there is no chance of this any longer, here is a hint in the form of a math joke (I actually read this joke in a book). Two math professors are sitting at a bar talking about the general public. The first professor says, "I bet the average person in here knows calculus." The second responded, "I'll bet you $5 our waitress doesn't." So they agree to ask the following question: what is the antiderivative of x^2? Of course they agreed the answer was (x^3)/3. So, they wait for their waitress to come over, and the second professor says to her, "We're trying to settle a bet. Can you tell us what the antiderivative of x^2 is?" The waitress responds, "Onethird times x cubed... plus C."
