The Power Rule:
if
then f'(x) =

If f(x) = sin x then f'(x) = ?
f'(x) = cos x

if f(x) = cos x then f'(x) =
f'(x) = sin x

If f(x) = tan x then f'(x) =

If f(x) = cot x then f'(x) =

If f(x) = sec x then f'(x) =
f'(x) = sec x tan x

If f(x) = csc x then f'(x) =
f'(x) = csc x cot x

Chain Rule (composite functions)
If
then
f'(x) =
f'(x)= g'[f(x)]f'(x)
