Polynomial Approximations--An Introduction to the Taylor Series
Twelfth graders examine the Taylor Series. In this calculus lesson, 12th graders explore the representation of a function as an infinite sum of terms calculated form the values of its derivatives at a single point, hence the Taylor Series.
Infinite Sequences and Series
Students investigate sequences and series numerically, graphically, and symbolically. In this sequences and series lesson, students use their Ti-89 to determine if a series is convergent. Students find the terms in a sequence and series and graph them.

Discussion Sheet 11: Taylor Series and Maclaurin Series
In this Taylor and Maclaurin series worksheet, students determine the nonzero terms in a series for a given function. They determine the limits and graph the function. This two-page worksheet contains examples, explanations, and six multi-step problems.

Exploring Taylor's Integrals
Learners are introduced to the use of Taylor's polynomials to integrate functions that are not easily integrated by hand. They complete a series of calculations that vary from integrating to finding a Taylor polynomial. Students approximate and interpret rates of change from graphical and numerical data.

Basic Complex Analysis
This video gives an excellent overview of the different representations of a complex number. First, Sal reviews a pictorial representation of a complex number as an Argand diagram, then shows how to find the modulus and the argument of a complex number and write a complex number in the form z = r (cos _+isin_), and finally, how to write a complex number in exponential form using EulerÕs relations.

Forces Acting on a Spring
Teaching elastic forces in your physics class is a snap with this resource! Scholars compare the stretch of rubber bands with differing width, then measure the stretch of a spring and calculate force. In a whole-class experiment, wire is attached to the ceiling and stretched by adding weights to the loose end.
