The Joy of Approximating with Calculus

Lecture no. 19 from the course: The Joy of Mathematics

The Joy of Approximating with Calculus

Taught by Professor Arthur T. Benjamin | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses

Exploiting the idea of the derivative, we can approximate just about any function using simple polynomials. This lecture also shows why a formula sometimes known as "God's equation" (involving e, i, p, 1, and 0) is true, and how to calculate square roots in your head.
