David A. Smith and Lawrence C. Moore, Duke University

with the assistance of
Jer-Chin Chuang, Furman University
John Michel, Marietta College

Purposes: To continue our study of polynomial approximations Pn(x) to a function f(x) (begun in Taylor Polynomials I); in particular, to study the set of numbers x for which Pn(x) approaches f(x) as n becomes large

Prerequisites: The Taylor Polynomials I module, plus arctangent and natural logarithm functions

geometric fit
