Description:

To continue our discussion of derivatives from preceding videos, we explain that the second derivative represents curvature. By combining knowledge of multiple derivatives, we can sometimes create Taylor series, which are local approximations of functions. As an example, we Taylor-expand sinusoidal functions and then use the results to iteratively approximate pi.
