    This video does a great job of explaining the basics of d/dx notation for a derivative and also how to find the derivative of a composition of functions using the chain rule. It uses a sort of “u substitution” with “inside” and “outside” functions to explain the chain rule. Several different and varied examples are used to explain the chain rule. How to find the derivative of the composition of three functions is also explained.
