The code:

    col sep=&,
    trim cells,
    columns/f(x)/.style={string type, column type={|C|}},
    columns/f'(x)/.style={string type, column type={C|}},
    every nth row={1}{before row=\hline},
    every head row/.style={before row=\hline, after row=\hline},
    every last row/.style={after row=\hline}
f(x) & f'(x) \\
{$k$} & $0$\\
{$x$} & $1$\\
{$x^{n}$} & $n\cdot x^{n-1}$\\
{$u^{n}$} & $n\cdot x^{n-1}\cdot u^{'}$\\
{$\sqrt{x}$} & $\dfrac{1}{2\sqrt{x}}$\\

I want put in blue color to the text in f(x) and f'(x) When I use in a cell a fraction expression, the text touches the bottom line and top line of the cell, How can I increase the high of these cells?

You can simplifyt things a little by putting the content in math mode automatically and removing the header row since you have math in the first row


    row sep=\\,
    col sep=&,
    column type=,
    string type,header=false,
    begin table=\begin{tabular}{|C|C|},
    every head row/.style={after row=\hline,output empty row},
    every nth row={1}{before row=\hline},
    every row/.append style={before row=\hline},
    every last row/.style={after row=\hline},
    postproc cell content/.style={/pgfplots/table/@cell content/.add={$\displaystyle}{$}},
\color{blue}f(x)    & \color{blue}f'(x)                    \\
k                   & 0                                    \\
x                   & 1                                    \\
x^{n}               & n\cdot x^{n-1}                       \\
u^{n}               & n\cdot x^{n-1}\cdot u'               \\
\sqrt{x}            & \dfrac{1}{2\sqrt{x}}                 \\
\sqrt[n]{u}         & \cfrac{u'}{n\sqrt[n-1]{u^{n-1}}}     \\
\ln u               & \dfrac{u'}{u}                        \\
\log_{a}u           & \dfrac{u'}{u}\cdot\dfrac{1}{\ln a}   \\
a^{u}               & a^{u}\cdot u'\cdot\ln a              \\
e^{x}               & e^{x}

  • Thank you very much, it works very fine and you've solved the problem with math expressions too.I've added [!hbt] in \begin{table} because i have got some text before the table, and now the table appears after this text. Thank you very much!
