In this lesson, we learned about the derivatives of trigonometric functions, including sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, and cosecant. We discovered that the derivative of each function has a specific pattern, and by remembering this pattern, we only need to remember three derivatives. We also saw examples of how to apply the product and quotient rules to find derivatives of more complex functions involving trigonometric functions.
The derivatives of sin, cos, tan, cot, sec, csc.
