11.5 Taylor Polynomials General procedure for finding an infinite polynomial series that converges to a "non7 polynomial" function. Taylor Polynomial at 0 The n th degree Taylor polynomial for f at x = 0 is P n ( x ) = f (0) + f '(0) x + f ''(0) 2! x 2 + f '''(0) 3! x 3 + + f n (0) n ! x n = f k (0) k ! x k k = 0 n provided f has n derivatives at 0. Example 1: Find ( ) 4 P x for ( ) x f x e = k ( ) k f x (0) k f (0) ! k f k COMPARE the graph of e x and the Taylor approximation to increasing values of n on the calculator & discuss "interval of convergence"

    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.
