1. This computer visualization activity is designed to provide students with an understanding of where a power series approximation is valid.
2. Students use Maple/Mathematica and the algebraic formula for the power series to approximate the function $\sin (\theta)$.
3. The whole class discussion focuses on considering how adding coefficients to the approximation increases the accuracy of the approximation and on where the approximation is valid.
