# Derivatives, Properties, and Formulas

This section begins with a look at which functions have derivatives. Then we'll examine how to calculate derivatives of elementary combinations of basic functions. By knowing the derivatives of some basic functions and just a few differentiation patterns, you will be able to calculate the derivatives of a tremendous variety of functions.

This section contains most, but not quite all, of the general differentiation patterns you will ever need.
