Abstract: Let F be a finite real valued function defined on [0, 1]. We prove that F can be transformed into a function which is differentiable a.e. by a homeomorphic change of variables if and only if F is continuous on a dense set. We also show that F can be transformed into a function which is approximately differentiable a.e. if and only if each interval $ I \subset [0,1]$ contains a nonempty perfect set P such that $ F\vert P$ is continuous.
