This applet shows the first 5 Taylor polynomials of a given function. The function is editable, and also the center of the neighborhood.

Observe how the successive orders converge to the given functions.

What happens if the function is a polynomial of order 5 or less?

What happens if the function has discontinuities, like tan(x)?

What happens if the function is not differentiable, like abs(x)?
