Course Description

This introduction to MATLAB® course is intended specifically to prepare students in the marine sciences for the programming and computational challenges they will encounter. No previous programming experience is necessary or expected.

Texts

“MATLAB: A Practical Introduction to Programming & Problem Solving” (4th Ed.)  ISBN-13: 978-0128045251 (Available from Amazon.com)

Computer

Students will be provided with a laptop computer with MATLAB® installed.

Instructional Strategy

This course will be taught in a very “hands-on” manner. Sample problems will be worked out collaboratively on the whiteboard and in MATLAB®, and programming exercises will be assigned and discussed each day.

Student Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course you will be able to use MATLAB® to:

  • Input and manipulate data of various formats
  • Perform mathematical operations on scalar and vector data
  • Save data and computations in various formats
  • Write scripts and functions (programs) for repetitive and/or complex tasks
  • Create graphics, such as plots and histograms, for visually analyzing data and computational output
  • Learn how to utilize MATLAB® in new ways
