RE: How to evaluate A Taylor series at a specific value
But a Taylor expansion has two parts: the polynomial part and the remainder term. Unfortunately students tend to forget the remainder term, and that will not help if the calculator ignores it as well. That's why you have taylor(.) and taylor(.,polynom) on the HP. And if you don't remind the polynom trick, you can still run f:=taylor(sin(x),x=0,5) then fx=0.5 and ignore the order_size term.
