You know that the

**derivative**of e^x is e^x. Do you know the chain rule? Do you know how to find the derivative of f(x)+ g(x) if you know the derivatives of f and g separately? Do you know the derivative of a constant? (Remember that the derivative is the "rate of change"- how fast does a constant change?)

Those are all things that are normally learned well before the derivative of the exponential.
