CS 1142 - Introduction to MATLAB

Fall, spring (weeks 1-7). 2 credits.

Corequisite: MATH 1110 , MATH 1910 , or equivalent.  No programming experience assumed. Co-meets with CS 1112 .


Introduction to elementary computer programming concepts using MATLAB. Topics include problem analysis, development of algorithms, selection, iteration, functions, and arrays. Examples and assignments are chosen to build an appreciation for computational science. The goal is for each student to develop a facility with MATLAB that will be useful in other courses whenever there is a need for computer problem solving or visualization.

Outcome 1: Be fluent in the use of procedural statements—assignments, conditional statements, loops, function calls-and arrays. Be able to design, code, and test small MATLAB programs that meet requirements expressed in English.

Outcome 2: Have a working familiarity with graphics tools in MATLAB.
