Differentiation of e^x

Differentiation

Year 12

This video looks at how we can differentiate functions which take the form of y=e^x. This is part of the Mathematical Methods Units 3 and 4 course. I start by looking at why the differential of the function is the same as the function and then show how to use the chain rule to find the differential of more complex functions. A number of examples are covered and related back to the theory.
