Practical introduction to MATLAB Programming

Thu 4 Oct - Fri 5 Oct 2018

Description

This module is shared with Psychology. Students from the Department of Psychology MUST book places on this course via the Department; any bookings made by Psychology students via the SSRMC portal will be cancelled.

The course focuses on practical hands-on variable handling and programming implementation using rather than on theory. This course is intended for those who have never programmed before, including those who only call/run Matlab scripts but are not familiar with how code works and how matrices are handled in Matlab. (Note that calling a couple of scripts is not 'real' programming.)

MATLAB (C) is a powerful scientific programming environment optimal for data analysis and engineering solutions. More information on the programme and its uses can be found here: https://www.mathworks.com/products/matlab.html

Prerequisites
  • No prior knowledge is needed.
  • Students will need to bring their own laptop with the latest version of Matlab (see www.mathworks.com) pre-installed. Cambridge students can download and install Matlab from mathworks.com for free with their CRSid. Select and install all packages available to you.
  • Before class, please skim through the excellent free resources, Getting Started and Language Fundamentals: http://uk.mathworks.com/help/matlab/index.html
