The Taylor Polynomial of a function is a polynomial that approximates the function at a point . This is very useful for transendental functions such as , etc...
The graph below shows 4 degrees of approximation of the function centered at zero, where is a constant. Why is each approximation more accurate than the previous? Does the value of affects the graph of the approximations?
