I'm new to Mathematica so I don't know very well the program itself. I would like to manipulate as he does this person in youtube: But I put all the information but nothing happens, I don't know if there are some changes from Mathematica 6 vs. the Mathematica 9.

Thanks a lot!

Surely you realise that nobody can answer this question the way you ask it. What does "I put all the data" mean? What data? Surely if you type in the code shown in the video it works? – acl Jul 7 '14 at 12:06
Thank you very much! I'm not a english speaker, so I didn't know if I was telling it correctly. Thanks a lot! – JMC Jul 7 '14 at 15:47

 Plot[{Sin@x, Normal@Series[Sin@u, {u, x0, n}] /. u -> x}, {x, -2 Pi,  2 Pi}, 
      PlotRange -> {Automatic, {-2, 2}}, 
      Epilog -> {PointSize[Medium], Point@{x0, Sin@x0}}], 
     {n, 0, 10, 1}, {x0, -Pi, Pi}]

Muchisimas gracias por la informacion, solo queria preguntarte una cosa mas. En el video se ve como tambien mueve el punto (x) en el cual quiere que se haga la aproximacion. ?Sabrias como se hace eso? Y lo que pone de informacion para el grafico, ha variado algo desde el Mathematica 6 al 9? Lo siento por los fallos ortograficos Saludos desde España! – JMC Jul 7 '14 at 16:06
