Alright, I know how to convert from Kelvin to Celsius (subtract 273), but I really don't know how many degrees Celsius are to Kelvin. (I need to convert .021 degK/s to deg/C)

its the reverse. You add 273.
technically 273.15 (but whatever).

1 degree Celcius = 1 degree Kelvin. The two scales are just offset from each other by the 273.

One starts at absolute zero and one starts at freezing point of water.

Is this how you convert the derivative, though? I know how to convert when it isn't the derivative, but...

... what?
Maybe derivative isn't the word you're looking for?

What exactly is it you are trying to calculate? Since the "sizes" of degrees K and degrees C are the same, temperature increasing by 1 degree Kelvin also increases by 1 degree C. If temperature is increasing by, say 10 degrees Kelvin per hour, it is increasing by 10 degrees Centigrade per hour.
