Differentiation Rules

Today, we will recap the four basic rules of Differentiation:

  • Differentiating Powers of x


(Power comes down, and the remaining power reduced by 1)

  • Chain Rule (i.e. times differentiate inside the bracket)
  • Product Rule


(Keep the first term X differentiate the second, PLUS keep the second term X differentiate the first)

  • Quotient Rule


(Keep the bottom term differentiate the top MINUS keep the top differentiate the bottom, whole thing over v^2)
