How Do I Differentiate Circular Functions?
This post explores how to find the derivative of circular functions, as a part of the VCE Maths Methods topic Calculus and subtopic Differentiation. This post will cover the differentiation of trigonometric functions \sin x, \cos x and \tan x .
The following video will introduce the rules of differentiating circular functions.
These next videos will give further explanation, and solidify your understanding on how to find derivatives of circular functions with examples. Part 2 and 3 also provide different methods for differentiation.
The following videos explain the magic behind the derivative of \sin x, \cos x and \tan x , proving how it works.
