Is finding the derivative of trigonometric/circular functions, like the sine and cosine functions, part of the Math SL syllabus? Is this the level of Math SL or is it more advanced?

I'm thinking of doing this in my calculations for my IA. Would it work?

You could use the first principles rule to prove the derivates, but I am not sure what is there in the Math SL syllabus, so I think that it would be better if you check with your teacher about this.

Dont really understadn if u try to use derivative of sin in ur ia or applying derivative in your ia. 

If u are proving the derivative of anything, then IT DONT WORK,  math ia should NOT foucs on proving something (say proving an equation) instead math ia should focus on applying math to real life. 

If u are using derivative of sin or other trig thingy, then its totally fine or even partially adavnced given you are a math sl.
