A **partial derivative calculator** is a **derivative calculator** that calculates the **derivatives of a function** with respect to any of its independent variables.

If a function has only one independent variable, its **derivatives** are called **ordinary derivatives** (with respect to that variable). If a function has multiple independent variables, its **derivatives** are called **partial derivatives** with respect to a specified variable.

To use this **ordinary** and **partial** **derivative calculator**:

- Type in a
**function****F**with any number of arbitrary variables and also a**variable**in the boxes provided and press the**Calculate Derivative**button. - The
**ordinary**or the**partial derivative**of the**function**with respect to the specified variable will be displayed in a newly added panel. You can also then calculate the**ordinary**or**partial derivatives**of**higher orders**of the*derived***functions**or of their**primitive**s with respect to any variable by proceeding as above on the relevant panel. - The label, e.g.,
**F**_{xy}means**(partial) derivative**of the**functions**F with respect to x and then with respect to y.

You can close any panel by pressing x.

In addition to calculating **derivatives of functions**, you can use the derivative graphing calculator to graph the first & second order **derivatives** of a single-variable **function**.
