-  - Maple is used to compute Legendre Coefficients +  - This [[strategy:computation:list|computer visualization]] activity is designed to help students visualize the approximation of functions with Legendre polynomials. 
-  - Students practice approximating a function by adding orthogonal functions +  - Students use a Maple Worksheet or a Mathematica Notebook to compute Legendre coefficients, practice approximating a function by adding orthogonal functions, and inspect the region over which the Legendre functions are orthogonal
-  - Students can add many Legendre functions together and inspect the goodness of fit +  - The entire class wrap-up discussion relates the Legendre polynomial approach in approximating functions to other approaches covered in previous courses (i.e. using Fourier series or power series).
-  - Students can inspect the region over which the Legendre functions are orthogonal+
