5/29/2011 -- Group B: Reading between the lines: An investigation into Interpolating Data (Rachel Danson)

Often data in the real world can only be collected for certain values, but what if you want to approximate values that were not given? In this meeting we will be exploring methods for constructing polynomials that pass through each data points, and can be used to approximate, or interpolate, the data.
