Homework Help: Linearization and tangent lines

  1. Oct 12, 2007 #1
    This is a general question, but what is the difference between finding the linearization and the tangent line to the same curve? And what about at a specific point?

    I would say linearization and tangent line mean the same thing. But that's just me.
