Abstract: A rational approximation to Weierstrass' $ \wp$-function in the equianharmonic case for unit period parallelogram is given. With a third-degree numerator polynomial and a fourth-degree denominator polynomial the maximal error for $ \vert z\vert < 1/\sqrt 3 $ becomes $ 3 \cdot {10^{ - 14}}$.

The approximation of $ \wp(z)$ is then used to calculate a rational approximation to $ \wp'(z)$ together with an error bound.
