uDerivative is a fast and simple way to learn how to simplify functions, and, to calculate and learn derivatives. You control the level of detail in calculating the derivative, the number of significant digits, and whether you want to use symbols (pi/e) or values.

Enter your formula with the calculator and the formula is simplified and displayed along with the resulting derivative. Press a button and get the steps to simplify the original function, press another button and learn how to calculate the derivative.

The steps are shown in a simple step-by-step list format. The simplified formula is calculated using basic algebra, each step describes what was done and the formula after that step is completed. The steps to determine the derivative are also available in a separate window.
