Here is the Description
- You should have basic computer skills. For example, you should be comfortable with starting applications, opening, closing and saving files, cutting and pasting text, directory structures, etc.
- You should know how to use a text editor, such as Windows Notepad, that you can use to write MATLAB programs. MATLAB also has its own built-in text editor which you can use(we’ll show you how).
- You should know basic algebra and trigonometry such as is typically covered in high school. Knowledge of basic linear algebra(i.e., concepts such as matrix, vector, inverse etc.) would also be very helpful, but is not strictly necessary; basic concepts and constructs from linear algebra will be explained as needed.
- The tutorial is intended to be highly interactive. While you are reading the exercise pages you should have MATLAB running in a separate window and you should perform and experiment with the tutorial exercises.
Prerequisites and Expectations for the Tutorial
Now you are ready to start the MATLAB tutorial.
Good luck and have fun with MATLAB!
Other Than mathwork here is some other MATLAB Tutorials
You can find many on-line tutorials on MATLAB on the internet. Listed below are some of them. These are second-hand documentations. Tutorials are meant to get you started, far from being complete. (For completeness, look to the next section.) Thus, topics missed in some will be picked up in others. The extent of coverage presented in the following first two links is suitable for ENCH250.
- “Getting Started with MATLAB” in HTML format from UMCP (66 pages)
- “Using MATLAB” in HTML format from UMCP (~600 pages)
- “MATLAB Function Reference” from UMCP
- Tutorial from MIT’s Athena (37 pages)
- 3-day MATLAB Tutorial from MIT (25 pages)
- Tutorial from Gilliam
- Tutorial from Ellinger/Barry University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (33 pages)
- Tutorials from Carnegie-Mellon University and the University of Michigan (55 pages, especially aimed at control/systems)
The first Basics Chapter from the above URL is suitable for ENCH250 students. Although other chapters are probably too advanced for sophomore ENCH250 students now, you can come back later when you take Chemical Process Control.
