1 17 April Matlab Copied from the original document on file at the Smokey Valley Genealogical Society and Library in Salina, KS, and reprinted by The Salina Journal. 8th Grade Final Exam: Salina, KS, from 1895 This is an 8-hour test (continued on next page) We spend the rest of the semester looking at the programming language Matlab. This language has variables, if-statements, loops, methods (called functions and procedures), like Java. It has no OO concepts. Instead, its operations on arrays and its ability to create graphs and tables make it well suited for a lot of engineering-type problem-solving. We do not spend time looking at loops and if-statements --you can learn these things yourself. We concentrate instead on the new kinds of things that Matlab brings to the programming table. Matlab is expensive. Rather than buy it, do all Matlab work in a Cornell Lab.
