Graphs of Taylor Polynomials
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
Choose the maximum degree of the Taylor polynomial to use to approximate a function. You can choose from a variety of functions and manipulate the expansion point. To see the error in the approximation, select the "error" radio button and use the slider that appears under the graph. Adjust the scale of the graph with the axis and axis sliders.
