• If f (x) = sin x, then f ′ (x) = cos x • If f (x) = cos x, then f ′ (x) = − sin x
• If f (x) = tan x, then f ′ (x) =
• If f (x) = csc x, then f ′ (x) =
• If f (x) = sec x, then f ′ (x) =
• If f (x) = cot x, then f ′ (x) = Example 1: Determine the missing derivatives of the trigonometric functions above. 7 c Kendra Kilmer February 3, 2012 Example 2: Differentiate the following functions:
a) f (x) = x sin x b) g(θ ) = eθ (tan θ − θ ) c) h(x) = 1 + sin x
