There are some Maclaurin series that occur often enough that they should be memorized. They are on your formula sheet, but today we are going to look at where they come from. Maclaurin Series: (generated by f at ) 0 x = ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 2 3 0 0 0 0 2! 3! f f P x f f x x x ′′ ′′′ = + + + + ⋅⋅⋅

List the function and its derivatives. Evaluate column one for x = 0 .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
