Practice using MATLAB before the start of class
In ME 448/548 you will use MATLAB every class during the first three weeks, and then throughout the rest of the class as needed.
There are many on-line resources to help you learn MATLAB. I suggest you try these tutorials
- Getting Started with MATLAB at the Mathworks
- MATLAB Tutorial by Kelly Black at the University of Georgia
and if you are very ambitious, try the Introduction to MATLAB Programming course at MIT.
A more gentle introduction is available via the web site for ME 350.
