After presenting an overview of numerical interpolation techniques, we will discuss a series of Mathematica based projects that integrate numerical interpolation and linear algebra concepts with basic animation concepts. The presenter will discuss how to prepare students for these projects and the benefits of Mathematica projects, as well as other interesting ideas for Numerical Analysis projects.
