This lesson covers the six inverse trigonometric functions: inverse sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, and cosecant. The lesson covers how to define these functions and their derivatives, as well as providing tables of values for each function. The lesson also includes examples of how to find the derivative of various functions using the product rule and chain rule. The inverse trig functions are a fundamental part of calculus and this lesson offers a thorough introduction to their properties and applications.
Inverse sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, and cosecant. Derivatives and companion indefinite integration formulas.
