## Video Tutorial: Derivative of the Natural Log Function

In this free video tutorial, learn how to calculate the derivative of the natural log function. The video begins with a review of exponential functions and the natural logarithmic function. It then explains composite functions that include natural log functions. To find the derivative of one of these composite functions, like e^(3x^2), you must combine the fact that the derivative of e^x is e^x and the chain rule.
