Curve Fitting

Play with curve fitting to a variable number of points. Choose from up to 30 points, move them around and see the resulting polynomial fit. It is interesting to see the effect of moving a single point when you have a few points and when there are many. You can use your mouse to add points and -click (-click on Mac) to delete points.
