CSc 3610/7610 Introduction to Matlab Programming
Dr. Michael Weeks
This course is designed as a friendly introduction to programming
in Matlab, especially for non-computer science majors. There will
be a semester project, which should be tailored to the students' own
Students are encouraged to use data from their advisors' labs.
- For example, someone working in a Biology lab might simulate
a population of crawfish, while another student might use Matlab
to find a specific sequence in DNA data.
- A Chemistry student could model interactions between chemicals.
- Students studying Physics could look for the presence of Muons in
data collected from a collider, or perhaps examine how the orbit of
the earth around the sun would be affected by a second moon.
The class syllabus is broken into sections.
- See the class specific information.

Note: Effective Fall, 2006, there is a
new Withdrawal policy, as
well as an optional, new, grading system. The grading system allows
for grades of A-, B+, B-, C+, and C-, along with the standard
A, B, C, D, F, WF.
