E7 is a programming course for engineers. In the first half of the course, you will learn the elements of programming that you need to build your own programs and solve engineering problems. Although this course focuses exclusively on programming in MATLAB, many of the programming concepts are generalizable to other programming languages. The second half of the course is focused on mathematical models and numerical methods for solving them. Prerequisites: - Math 53 It will help (but not a prerequisite) if you have - Some familiarity with calculus, linear algebra - Some notion of programming Set of notes We have a set of notes for you. Everything you need to know to do the labs and the exams is in the notes. Notes have examples, sample code, explanations of the concepts. Notes have been written specifically for you, for this class, so there is a complete sync between the lectures, the labs, the exams and the material. Notes will be posted on bSpace First half of notes will be available at the Northside Copy Central for about $12. Second half will be available later on. Notes are not perfect (they are written for the course, and this is the first edition). There might be bugs: If things seem wrong, you need to tell us (more on this later) We will have a TerminaBug contest (more on this later).
