# How to turn FindFit result into function within a Module context

I'm trying to construct a 'normal' function (with formal parameter) from the FindFit result within a Module context.

While this works on a global level:

In :=

points = Table[{x, 2 x^2 + 3 x + 4 + RandomReal[]}, {x, 1, 10}];
model = a x^2 + b x + c;
fit = FindFit[points, model, {a, b, c}, x];
f[x_] = Evaluate[model /. fit];
f


Out :=

18.473


the same trick in a Module doesn't work.

In :=

Module[{points, model, fit, a, b, c, x, f},
points = Table[{x, 2 x^2 + 3 x + 4 + RandomReal[]}, {x, 1, 10}];
model = a x^2 + b x + c;
fit = FindFit[points, model, {a, b, c}, x];
f[x_] = Evaluate[model /. fit];
f
]


Out :=

4.1934 + 3.25034 x$30780002 + 1.97626 x$30780002^2


Looks that the trick with Evaluate doesn't work in a Module context - the argument x of the f is a new variable that is unurelated to the module-scoped x. I would not expect it to work even on a global level. Yet it works.

So the question/problem is: how to get the same effect in Modules in a Wolfram-idiomatic way?

Maybe I've missed the essence of Modules. I just want to protect the outside world from any leakage of assigned variables via lexical scoping, because I found that it is too easy to mess the global environment and destroy symbolical computations in unrelated parts of the script.

Clear[f]

f[x_] = Module[
{points, model, fit, a, b, c, x = x, f},
(* x=x equates the function's argument to the Module's local \
variable *)
SeedRandom;
points =
Table[
{x, 2 x^2 + 3 x + 4 + RandomReal[]},
{x, 1, 10}];
model = a x^2 + b x + c;
fit = FindFit[points, model, {a, b, c}, x];
model /. fit];

f

(* 18.5393 *)


The only issue here is that the x in f[x] is another local variable, different than the one in Module. To solve this in such cases I typically use patterns, like

 Module[{points, model, fit, a, b, c, x, f},
points = Table[{x, 2 x^2 + 3 x + 4 + RandomReal[]}, {x, 1, 10}];
model = a x^2 + b x + c;
fit = FindFit[points, model, {a, b, c}, x];
f[xx_] = model /. fit /. x -> xx;
f]


This works fine, but I am really looking forward for someone to suggests a more elegant solution, if it exists...
