Abstract: A class of simple rational polynomial approximations for the Fresnel integrals is given with maximum errors from $ 1.7 \times {10^{ - 3}}$ down to $ 4 \times {10^{ - 8}}$. The domain $ [0,\infty ]$ is not subdivided. The format is particularly convenient for programmable hand calculators and microcomputer subroutines.
