# Ch 42: MTTC Math (Secondary): Calculating Derivatives & Derivative Rules

The activities in this chapter will help you prepare for the MTTC Mathematics (Secondary) exam by helping you improve your skills calculating derivatives and applying rules of differentiation.

## MTTC Math (Secondary): Calculating Derivatives & Derivative Rules - Chapter Summary

Use this chapter to prepare for questions on the MTTC Mathematics (Secondary) test that may ask you to find derivatives of trigonometric functions, polynomial equations and exponential equations. Start by watching the lesson videos of expert instructors who will step you through example problems. If you develop any questions during these lessons, be sure to send them to these instructors so that you can effectively improve your skills:

• Calculating derivatives using limits
• Understanding the linear properties of derivatives
• Finding the derivatives of trigonometric functions, polynomial equations and exponential equations
• Differentiating complex functions and factored polynomials
• Using graphs to understand higher order derivatives
• Calculating higher order derivatives
• Finding derivatives of implicit functions
• Applying the rules of differentiation when calculating derivatives

In addition to watching these lesson videos, complete the lesson assessments to reinforce your understanding of the material you've mastered and discover any material you need to review further. Improve your mastery over these areas of weakness by returning to the lessons with video tags that are linked to the key parts of the lesson videos. Alternatively, if you feel you would benefit from another way of reviewing the material you can read over the lesson transcripts.
