Do You Know Your Derivative Rules?

Derivative rules count a number of rules that govern all the sets of derivatives in mathematics, like, for instance, derivatives of exponential and logarithmic function, derivatives of trigonometric functions, or again, derivatives of hyperbolic functions. If you believe you've always been a math genius, then have fun taking our quiz.
