# Derivatives

Derivatives measure the rate of change along a curve with respect to a given real or complex variable. Wolfram|Alpha is a great resource for determining the differentiability of a function, as well as calculating the derivatives of trigonometric, logarithmic, exponential, polynomial and many other types of mathematical expressions. Differentiation has many applications within physics, trigonometry, analysis, optimization and other fields.
