Learn how to find the Maclaurin Series for a function using the example of the exponential function, e^X
Maclaurin Series are Taylor Series centered at zero
You have to learn the formula for a Maclaurin Series expansion, or know the formula for a Taylor Series expansion and use the special case centered at zero
It’s good practice to create a table of required derivatives before plugging into the formula – doing this on the fly can get messy and introduce errors
It is useful to memorise common Maclaurin Series expansions
