The Chain Rule How do we differentiate the function? We could multiply the whole thing out but that would take WAY too long Instead, we notice that there is an “inside part” (inside the bracket) that we can differentiate easily What we are doing to the bracket is the “outside part” We also know how to differentiate this using the power rule something something

What the chain rule says is that when we have a function with an “inside part” and an “outside part” Chain rule says, to differentiate we must take Derivative of the “outside part” the inside bit doesn’t Change here! Derivative of the inside part the derivative of the outside part multiplied by the derivative of the inside part

We can make this more mathematical When we talk about “inside” and “outside” parts we mean having a function inside another function and Then When we sub the function t in we get So the function is inside the function

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
