The derivative of a function is often used to find rates of change. It is also related to the slope of a tangent line. On the AP Calculus BC exam, many questions involve finding the derivative of a function. In this chapter, you will learn different techniques for finding a derivative, which include using the Power Rule, Product & Quotient Rules, Chain Rule, and Implicit Differentiation. You will also learn to find the derivatives of trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic, and inverse functions, as well as apply L'H?pital's Rule.
