Reading Assignment Blackboard: Documentation, Programming, and Course Standards MATLAB Textbook: Chapter 1: pp. 1-8 Chapter 2: pp. 9-41, 44-49 Chapter 3: pp. 57-66, 63 - Table 3.1; 70 - Table 3.4, 104-105; 105 -Table 3.16 Chapter 4: pp. 114- 122; 128 - Table 4.3; 129-130 Chapter 5: pp. 140-156, 143-Table 5.1, 147 - Table 5.2 Mathworks Tutorials (Optional but Recommended): Much (but not all) of the content in the above reading is represented visually in the following Interactive MATLAB Tutorial materials available through the MathWorks website, www.mathworks.com/purduefirstyear/matlabtutorial . The recommended segments for this week are: MATLAB On-Ramp: h Navigating the MATLAB Desktop h MATLAB Fundamentals o MATLAB as a Calculator o Creating Variables o Accessing Data in MATLAB (Note: We do not use the Variable Editor in this course) o Creating Vectors o Creating Matrices o Array Operations (Note: You may wish to also view Matrix Operations, but you are not expected to understand Matrix mathematics if you have not seen this in your math classes yet.) ENGR 19500 Ideas to Innovations Part II Spring 2010 o Visualizing of Mathematical Functions (Note: We will not generate plots from the Workspace only the Command Window or an m-file. But this segment sets up the problem that is continued in the following segments.) o Calling a MATLAB Function o Using plot to Visualize Computer Data 1. MATLAB in Practice This is to be completed individually. This problem is added to your homework grade. Is MATLAB really used by engineers? How? Visit the website www.mathworks.com/company/user_stories/index.html and locate two User Stories that interest you. In a Microsoft Word document: 1. Write in your own words • a brief summary (300 – 400 words) of the applications of MATLAB described in the two User Stories you selected, and • why these two stories interested you in terms of your interests in engineering. 2.
