    This lesson explains the concept of taking the derivative of e^x, which is one of the simplest derivatives to take, and it is also one of the most interesting derivatives. This is a great introduction to taking derivatives of the exponential function and why it works the way it does. Many different examples are shown, solved, and explained in this lesson.
