π₯**Watch: AP Calculus AB/BC - ****Practicing Derivative Rules**

Obviously, there are a myriad of functions beyond just polynomials that we might need to take the derivatives of. These are functions that you should work on memorizing throughout the year -- you will use them quite a bit, so they should just come naturally to you after you have done a few problems. In the meantime, itβs totally okay to use a cheat sheet! (I am in Calc III and I still use a cheat sheet for some of these derivatives. π
)Β

Pay attention to the **du/dx** at the end of every formula. This just means that you have to **multiply **by the derivative of u -- donβt skip this step! Weβll discuss why we do this when we learn about the **Chain Rule** in Unit 3.Β

The product and quotient rules are usually applied when you are taking the derivatives of special functions:Β

Another class of functions that pop up on the exam are **logarithmic **and **exponential functions **-- especially natural log and e functions. In fact, one of the definitions of Eulerβs number (e) is that **the derivative of e^x is also e^x**.
