This cheat sheet covers the high school math concept – Differentiation.


This concept is a part of differential calculus. Though it is fairly easy as a concept in itself, it is one of the most important tools across all areas of high school mathematics, even physics and chemistry.

Limits form the basis of differentiation. Hence, a strong understanding of limits and related standard formulas is a must to understand differentiation using the first principle. A cheat sheet on Limits is also available on this website.

Furthermore, knowledge about the formulas of differentiation will help solving problems related to indefinite integration. A cheat sheet on Indefinite Integrals is also available on this website.

This one page PDF covers summarised theory and the most important formulas related to the concept. Keep it handy while you’re revising the concept, especially before an exam.

The topics included in this cheat sheet are:

  • Differentiation using the First Principle
  • Rules of Differentiation
  • Multiplication by a Constant
  • Sum Rule
  • Difference Rule
  • Product Rule
  • Quotient Rule
  • Chain Rule
  • Differentiation of Parametric Functions
  • Logarithmic Differentiation
  • Higher Order Derivatives
  • Differentiation Formulas of Elementary Functions
