Make sure you read Croy section 200 and learn the four required principal parts of δίδωμι, which is the most common of the -μι verbs. You should take a look at the 4th and 5th principal parts (notice how they have the reduplication you would expect in the perfect system), and then focus your attention on the present and aorist system parts:
1. δίδωμι: Notice that there is reduplication in the present system, with an iota inserted between the reduplicated consonants. There is a special set of endings you will need to learn for the present active indicative forms.
2. δώσω: The future active form is exactly what you would expect, with a typical sigma. You use the same endings for this future as for any other future tense verb you have learned:
future active δώσω, δώσεις, δώσει, δώσομεν, δώσετε, δώσουσι
future middle δώσομαι, δώσῃ, δώσεται, δωσόμεθα, δώσεσθε, δώσονται
3. ἔδωκα: The aorist stem has a kappa instead of a sigma, but the endings are just what you would expect (see Croy section 202).
6. ἐδόθην: The aorist passive stem is exactly what you would expect, with a typical theta. You use the same endings for this aorist passive and future passive tense verb you have learned:
aorist past passive ἐδόθην, ἐδόθης, ἐδόθη, ἐδόθημεν, ἐδόθητε, ἐδόθησαν
future passive ἐδοθήσομαι, ἐδοθήσῃ, ἐδοθήσεται, ἐδοθησόμεθα, ἐδοθήσεσθε, ἐδοθήσονται
