In order to succeed in AP calculus, a student must master some common formulas that are needed during differentiation. By definition, differentiation is the process of finding a derivative of a function. The formulas given have been derived by using the definition of the derivative.
In this e-document, you will find all the differentiation rules for power functions, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions and inverse trigonometric functions.
By mastering these formulas, a student will have the basic tools needed to succeed in the AP calculus exam.
