Taylor Polynomials

  1. May 28, 2010 #1
    I'm doing calc-2, and I have hard time understanding and visualizing the idea of Taylor approximation in my head. By the same time I have no problems solving homework on this topic.

    Can someone please explain how I should visualize and think about approximations using Taylor Polynomials to really understand this...

    I'm going to take the liberty of referring you to https://www.physicsforums.com/blog.php?b=1758 [Broken], which I wrote some time ago.

    I hope it gets you started, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

    Oh..., great post!
    Now I need some time to digest this in my mind...=)
    I'm already have a question but need time to formulate it clearly...
    Again, thank you very much!
