Math 222 Current Assignment

Due Friday, March 1

The worksheet Taylor in Math 222:Lecture 6 illustrates estimating the size of partial derivatives graphically, and then using that to estimate the error in replacing functions by their Taylor polynomials.

Note that the labeling of axes can be used to estimate from a graph how big the values of the function are. If for example, an axis label includes the numbers 1,2,3, and 4, but not 0 or 5, it is fair to assume that the function is always between 0 and 5 in the region. Assuming one hasn't used the view option, or run into other diffculties of discretization...
