This paper mainly studies the evaluation of partial derivatives of four types of two-variables functions. We can obtain the infinite series forms of any order partial derivatives of these four types of functions by using differentiation term by term theorem, and hence reducing the difficulty of calculating their higher order partial derivative values greatly. On the other hand, we propose four functions of two-variables to evaluate their any order partial derivatives, and some of their higher order partial derivative values practically. At the same time, we employ Maple to calculate the approximations of these higher order partial derivative values and their infinite series forms for verifying our answers.
