Maclaurin Taylor Series for Transcendental Functions: A Graphing-Calculator View of Convergence

  • Maclaurin Taylor Series for Transcendental Functions: A Graphing-Calculator View of Convergence

    Marvin Stick
    Most calculus students can perform the manipulation necessary for a polynomial approximation of a transcendental function. However, many do not understand the underlying concept. Graphing-calculator technology can be used to bridge this gap between the concept of an interval of convergence for a series and polynomial approximations.
