Summary: In this paper the authors critically analyse popular way of graphic presentation Taylor’s polynomials in context of function approximation. They discuss the difficulties of presentation the best local polynomial approximation of function by Taylor’s polynomials. Proposed by the authors method of graphical presentation based on table of function and Taylor’s polynomials values in neighbourhood of a chosen point. For graphical presentation ListPlot and Plot functions with logarithmic scale in Mathematica System are used.
