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.  Students use a TI-89 to explore the patterns and the command to compute the Taylor series.
