Derivative Calculations & Rules - Chapter Objectives

The CEOE Advanced Mathematics exam measures a student's knowledge of subject matter in accordance with Oklahoma educator licensure regulations. The exam measures mathematical processes and number sense; relations functions, and algebra; measurement and geometry; trigonometry and calculus; and probability, statistics, and discrete mathematics. The material covered in this Derivative Calculations and Rules chapter is tested in the trigonometry and calculus portion of the CEOE exam, which comprises about 23% of the entire test. The exam includes approximately 80 multiple-choice questions and one open-response question.

Using Limits to Calculate the Derivative

1. Using Limits to Calculate the Derivative

If you know the position of someone as a function of time, you can calculate the derivative -- the velocity of that person -- as a function of time as well. Use the definition of the derivative and your knowledge of limits to do just that in this lesson.

The Linear Properties of a Derivative

2. The Linear Properties of a Derivative

In this lesson, learn two key properties of derivatives: constant multiples and additions. You will 'divide and conquer' in your approach to calculating the limits used to find derivatives.

Calculating Derivatives of Trigonometric Functions

3. Calculating Derivatives of Trigonometric Functions

The trigonometric functions show up almost everywhere that you have a repeating pattern. In this lesson, learn how to find the derivatives of the trigonometric functions.

Understanding Higher Order Derivatives Using Graphs

4. Understanding Higher Order Derivatives Using Graphs

The derivative is a rate of change, like velocity. What happens, though, when your velocity - that is, your rate of change - is changing? Explore the changing changes in this lesson.

Calculating Higher Order Derivatives

5. Calculating Higher Order Derivatives

Differentiating functions doesn't have to stop with the first or even second derivative. Learn what a mathematical jerk is as you calculate derivatives of any order in this lesson.

How to Find Derivatives of Implicit Functions

6. How to Find Derivatives of Implicit Functions

How do you define the rate of change when your function has variables that cannot be separated? Learn how implicit differentiation can be used to find dy/dx even when you don't have y=f(x)!

How to Calculate Derivatives of Inverse Trigonometric Functions

7. How to Calculate Derivatives of Inverse Trigonometric Functions

Like a metronome, trigonometric functions are regular. Even predictable. In this lesson, you will learn how to use this predictability to remember the derivative formulas for these common functions.

Applying the Rules of Differentiation to Calculate Derivatives

8. Applying the Rules of Differentiation to Calculate Derivatives

In this lesson, we'll review common derivatives and their rules, including the product, quotient and chain rules. We'll also examine how to solve derivative problems through several examples.
