CS 1115 - [Introduction to Computational Science and Engineering Using Matlab Graphical User Interfaces]

Fall. Not offered 2017-2018. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Forbidden Overlap: due to a partial overlap in content, students will receive 6 credits instead of 8 if they take CS 1115 and CS 1110 . In addition, students will receive credit for only one course in the following group: CS 1112 , CS 1114 , CS 1115.
Prerequisite: Student should have some prior programming experience. Corequisite:  MATH 1920  or MATH 1120  or equivalent. Enrollment limited to: freshman.


Programming and problem solving using MATLAB. Emphasizes the systematic development of algorithms and programs. Topics include iteration, functions, arrays, and MATLAB graphics. Assignments are designed to build an appreciation for complexity, dimension, fuzzy data, inexact arithmetic, randomness, simulation, and the role of approximation. The pace is more rapid than CS 1112 . Every assignment involves the design of a graphical user interface and highlights important aspects of computational science and engineering.

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: Have knowledge of the interplay between mathematics, computing, engineering, and science.

Outcome 3: Able to design and build a graphical user interface in Matlab.
