Partial Differentiation Test 01 (DEWIS)
Four questions on partial differentiation. The first two involve finding the first and second partial derivative of a polynomial in x and y. The third involves finding a first partial derivative using the chain rule. The fourth involves finding a second partial derivative involving the product rule.
