How do I make a derivative?

Making derivatives essentially comes down to one trick: Tell OOo it's a fraction.

In other words, you have to use the “over" command. Combine this with either the letter “d" (for a total derivative) or the “partial" command (for a partial derivative) to achieve the effect of a derivative.

{df} over {dx}\frac{df}{dx}
{partial f} over {partial y}\frac{\partial f}{\partial y}
{partial^2 f} over {partial t^2}\frac{\partial^2 f}{\partial t^2}
