CS 1112 - Introduction to Computing Using MATLAB

Fall, spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Forbidden Overlap: due to a partial overlap in content, students will receive 6 credits instead of 8 if they take CS 1112 and CS 1110 .  In addition, students will receive credit for only one course in the following group: CS 1112, CS 1114 CS 1115 .
Corequisite: MATH 1110 , MATH 1910 , or equivalent. Assumes student is comfortable with mathematics (at level of one semester of calculus) but has no prior programming experience. Co-meets with CS 1142 .


Programming and problem solving using MATLAB. Emphasizes the systematic development of algorithms and programs. Topics include iteration, functions, arrays, recursion, object-oriented programming, and MATLAB graphics. Assignments are designed to build an appreciation for complexity, dimension, fuzzy data, inexact arithmetic, randomness, simulation, and the role of approximation.

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. This includes a basic understanding of top-down design.

Outcome 2: Understand the concepts of object-oriented programming as used in MATLAB: classes, subclasses, inheritance, and overriding.

Outcome 3: Have knowledge of basic sorting and searching algorithms.

Outcome 4: Have a working familiarity with graphics tools in MATLAB.
