Derivatives Formula Sheet


Kenneth Hora

For all of you who are getting ready for the Calc. Final, here is a list of the major derivatives for
review. Good luck!


Don’t know what a derivative is? Simply put, derivatives find the slope of a given function at a point. This has many uses, like
finding the velocity and acceleration of a particle at a specific moment in time. They can also be used to find the minimum and maximum points of a function. There’s a lot more to derivatives than this, so, if you’re curious, the YouTube channel 3Blue1Brown has a great series introducing calculus and the derivative here.
