# Differentiating trigonometric functions review

Review your trigonometric function differentiation skills and use them to solve problems.

## How do I differentiate trigonometric functions?

First, you should know the derivatives for the basic trigonometric functions:

You can actually use the derivatives of sine and cosine (along with the quotient rule) to obtain the derivatives of all the other functions.

After you've mastered the derivatives of the basic trigonometric functions, you can differentiate trigonometric functions whose arguments are polynomials, like $\sec\left(\dfrac{3\pi}{2}-x\right)$.
