Özet

This paper discusses teaching polynomial interpolation with the help of Mathematica. The symbolic power of Mathematica is utilized to prove a theorem for the error term in Lagrange interpolating formula. Derivation of the Lagrange formula is provided symbolically and numerically. Runge phenomenon is also illustrated. A simple and efficient symbolic derivation of cubic splines is also provided.
