C. Maclaurin. A Scottish mathematician gained his master degree at age 17, and his major mathematics’ work arise from his special knowledge in Newton’s ideas and the formulation of Newton’s methods.
However, C. Maclaurin also contributed to the astronomy science and helped to improve maps and invented some mechanical devices .
My mathematics python’s programs is a set of Maclaurin’s series to compute some of the most important functions in calculus.
Though, the computation of an infinite sum which give the value of a function in terms of the derivatives evaluated at a special case where  x0 = 0,  f(0) = f(0) + f’(0)x/1! + f”(0)x²/2! +..………..
in contrast with Taylor series f(x) = f(x0) + f’(x0)(x-x0)/1! + f”(x0)(x-x0)²/2! + …….

The Maclaurin’s series to approximate ( 1+x)^m is known as a binomial series.
However, if m is a an integer and m >= 0 the function f(x ) = (1+x)^m is a polynomial function of degree m and it will converge for all the values of x on the interval [- , +  ], otherwise it will converge to (1+x)^m only for the values of x on the interval ]-1,1[, thus, the convergence of x will depend on the value of m
