Taylor Polynomials: Intro & Theory

We can extend the concept of a tangent ‘line’ to make polynomials such as quadratics or cubics that locally approximate any differentiable function f(x). These polynomials that approximate f(x) are called Taylor Polynomials. Taylor Polynomials that are specifically centered around x=0 are known as Maclaurin Polynomials.
