Wiki Collaboration Parties - Polynomial Interpolation and Physics Misconceptions

Wiki collaboration party

This week, we will be improving:

Wiki pagePolynomial interpolation using Remainder Factor TheoremPhysics common misconceptions
Hosted byCalvinCalvin
Supported byPi HanTBD
Current statusBrainstormingBrainstorming
Target AudienceAlgebra Level 3-5Physics L1-3
MotivationTo understand how this worksTo avoid such mistakes
Meeting at2/27 8:00 am PST, 9:30pm IST2/28 8:00 am PST, 9:30pm IST
Chatroom#Mathematics#Physics

Each meeting will be conducted over Slack chat and will last for approximately 60-90 minutes. We will achieve the following:

  1. (5 mins) Figure out the target audience, and their motivation for reading the page
  2. (20 mins) (Quick review of examples) Discuss what we love / don't love
  3. (15 mins) Ensure we have a complete list of examples
  4. (15 mins) Discuss how to organize various sections of the page
  5. (10 mins) Settle on the final structure of the page
  6. (5 mins) Assign out sections to write over the week

If you have any questions, please comment below!

What is Polynomial Interpolation? Cedie Camomot · 7 months ago

Log in to reply

@Cedie Camomot Can you find a polynomial of degree exactly 4 that satisfies \( f(1) = 1 , f(2) = 2, f(3) = 3, f(4) = 4 \)? Calvin Lin Staff · 7 months ago

@Calvin Lin I think its 25 Sir. I'm sorry if I'm wrong. Cedie Camomot · 7 months ago

@Cedie Camomot The question is "Can you find ... ". I'm not sure how to interpret an answer of "25".

The question is answers "What is polynomial interpolation". Namely, it is "Given a series of values at certain points, when can we find a polynomial (with certain restrictions) that attains those values?" Calvin Lin Staff · 7 months ago

@Calvin Lin I'm sorry Sir i don't know how to solve that. So how how to find the polynomial degree base on you question given to me. Cedie Camomot · 7 months ago

@Cedie Camomot Check out the wiki page. It's being worked on and should be completed in 2 weeks :) Please provide feedback so that we can improve on it! Calvin Lin Staff · 7 months ago
