This worksheet illustrates the convergence of the Taylor (power) series for a function bounded and defined on (-1,1). You can modify the number of terms that will be used, and then view the animation as the terms are gradually added from lowest to highest power. To get started, just press enter after all of the statements. Then try your own f(x) and play with N.
