# Wiki Collaboration Parties - Polynomial Interpolation and Physics Misconceptions

Wiki collaboration party

This week, we will be improving:

 Wiki page Polynomial interpolation using Remainder Factor Theorem Physics common misconceptions Hosted by Calvin Calvin Supported by Pi Han TBD Current status Brainstorming Brainstorming Target Audience Algebra Level 3-5 Physics L1-3 Motivation To understand how this works To avoid such mistakes Meeting at 2/27 8:00 am PST, 9:30pm IST 2/28 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!

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

What,s TBD?

To be determined. Shall I put your name there?

Staff - 5 years, 5 months ago

Sorry, I probably won't be able to make it. I've got a test the day after

What is Polynomial Interpolation?

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Can you find a polynomial of degree exactly 4 that satisfies $f(1) = 1 , f(2) = 2, f(3) = 3, f(4) = 4$?

Staff - 5 years, 5 months ago

I think its 25 Sir. I'm sorry if I'm wrong.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

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?"

Staff - 5 years, 5 months ago

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.

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!
