Derivatives of Logarithmic Functions
This video demonstrates how the derivative of the natural logarithmic function (ln[x]) is simply 1 divided by x. It describes how this derivative can be found using both the definition of the derivative and a calculator. Derivatives of logarithmic functions are simpler than they would seem to be, even though the functions themselves come from an important limit in Calculus. (5:13)

Derivative Definition - Problem 2
This video works through a problem that involves estimating the value of the derivative. The definition of the derivative is the slope of a line that lies tangent to the curve at the specific point. The derivative is a function, and derivatives of many kinds of functions can be found, including linear, power, polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions. (2:13)
