www.google.co.uk is where you can find your answer. You may as well learn how to prove it anyway.

I very much doubt it - without wanting to be horribly snarky, I suspect any proof of Maclaurin done pre-university leaves rather a lot to be desired anyhow.

More realistically, you've probably had a "demonstration" of why if we can write f(x) = \sum a_k x^k, then a_k = f^{(k)}(0) / k!. The argument is easy enough to memorize and the approach may come in handy for certain types of question, even though I still think it's unlikely you'd ever be specifically asked to reproduce it.
