Lecture 3.3 Derivatives of Trigonometric Functions Optional problems from the text: #1-13 odd, 15,16,19,21,29,31,35,37 To prove the derivatives of y = sin " and y = cos we’ll need to results of two limits lim # 0 sin = 1 lim # 0 cos $ 1 = 0 Write down, using the limit definition, the derivative of y = sinx Write down, using the limit definition, the derivative of y = cosx Now that we have these two derivatives, we can find the derivatives of the other 4 basic trigonometric functions using quotient rule. Find the derivative of y = tanx using the quotient rule and the derivatives of
