Lesson Plan: Combining the Product, Quotient, and Chain Rules Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to find the first derivative of a function using combinations of the product, quotient, and chain rules.


Students will be able to

  • find the derivative of a function that requires a combination of product, quotient, and chain rules,
  • understand how to apply a combination of the product, quotient, and chain rules in the correct order depending on the composition of a given function.


Students should already be familiar with

  • the power rule of differentiation,
  • the product rule of differentiation,
  • the quotient rule of differentiation,
  • the chain rule of differentiation.


Students will not cover

  • implicit differentiation.
