In this lesson, we explore methods of expanding functions into power series. The basic idea hinges on the geometric series expansion of 1/(1-x) . However, using differentiation and integration we can expand many more functions into power series also. In addition, we will examine the interval of convergence and how it is affected by the location of the expansion and features of the function such as vertical asymptotes. In general, this module will reinforce methods one might use by hand and not rely on the automated expansions Maple can generate.
