This thesis deals with approximation of real valued functions. It considers interpolation and numerical integration of functions. It also looks at error and precision, the Weierstrass Theorem and Taylors Theorem. In addition, spherical harmonics, the Laplacian, Hilbert spaces and linear projections are considered with respect to the unit sphere. An example of distributing points equally on a sphere is illustrated and a covering theorem for a unit sphere is proved.
