    Simpson's Rule:

    \int_a^bf(x)\,dx

    \approx\frac{b-a}{3n}\left[f(x_0)+4f(x_1)+2f(x_2)+4f(x_3)+2f(x_4)+\cdots+4f(x  _{n-1})+f(x_n)\right],

    where n is even.

    You should use [1,\,3] as your interval, with n=4. To make things easier, you can bring the \pi factor out of the integrand, and just use [f(x)]^2 in the above formula.

    If you have any specific questions, then we can provide further help, but as this seems like a graded assignment you should not expect a full or detailed solution.
