Derivatives of Basic Functions

In this section we'll find derivatives of functions that pop up all the time. Unlike pop-up ads, they won't be blocked. Almost all derivative problems will use one of these functions. We'll look at constant functions, lines, power functions, exponential functions, and some logarithmic and trigonometric ones too.
