If they do, compute the function on the input data and submit your answers. If they do not……. From lecture 1: Always do an E7 programming assignment this way • First convert the engineering problem into function that can be effectively calculated – The function should be written down using pen and paper in the language of mathematics • Then program the function – Translate the mathematical language into a programming language, i.e., the language understood by your computer. • Then run the program and test it to see if its outputs match those specified by the function. If they do, compute the function on the input data and submit your answers. If they do not……. E7 Module 1. Midterm 1 Module1: How do we program a mathematical function in Matlab? • What is a program? – A program is a description of a mathematical function in a language understood by the computer – A program is a description of an algorithm to calculate a mathematical function in a language understood by the computer • E7 computer language – MATLAB Program: How do we describe a mathematical function to a computer?...
