The primary purpose of the book is to teach computer programming to It uses the programming system and language called MATLAB to do so June, Both the iBooks and the PDF editions have been updated with numerous fixes. The Computer Programming with MATLAB ebook. See more articles and was provided as a PDF document at the beginning of each semester. In , we. Computer Programming with MATLAB teaches computer programming and introductory computer science to novices using the MATLAB system and language.
The CS ebook has numerous videos, including one showing an animated surface plot and another showing the insertion of a new node in a linked list Figure 2.
Figure 2. We were careful to provide consistent, accepted definitions for all computer science terms used in the course. When students encounter a new term in the ebook, with a single tap they can see a definition, jump to the glossary, or even switch to a browser and read more about the term on Wikipedia. Figure 3.
Student annotations showing code selected for copying blue and text highlighted for later review green. Students can use this capability from their dorm room or anywhere else on campus, freeing them from having to visit a computer lab or carry their laptops around to experiment with new ideas.
Figure 4. Following that simplified lesson, we tell the students it is time to begin some real programming, and we follow the topics covered in the ebook. After introducing the MATLAB environment, including matrices and operators, we teach procedural programming, beginning with a lesson on functions.
Students learn the importance of well-defined interfaces and how to use functions to create reusable software components. We then take a more in-depth look at functions, introducing functions with a variable number of arguments and recursion. The final lessons cover searching, including sequential and binary searches, and sorting algorithms, including selection sort and merge sort.
CS concludes with a project in which the students apply the concepts they have learned throughout the semester. Past projects have included processing and analyzing Twitter data in MATLAB and calculating the force needed to slingshot a rocket around Jupiter and out of the solar system, for example. CS Today CS is now a required course for first-year civil, chemical, mechanical, and biomedical engineering students at Vanderbilt. The course is also popular among science majors and other non-engineering students, and about a quarter of the more than students enrolled each semester take the course as an elective.
In addition to its growing popularity among students, the course has garnered the approval of engineering faculty across departments.
As for the ebook, it has been well received by the students. The examples started out simple and easy to understand and progressed to more challenging throughout each chapter.
The commentary throughout was fun, and the functions at the back of the chapter really helped me practice the concepts. It was nice that half the solutions were easily accessible online.
The graphics and images were also really great and easy to understand. Lastly, I appreciated the computer version of the textbook, which made it easy to carry around.
Made my class much more enjoyable. Showing Rating details. Sort order.
May 10, Mike rated it did not like it. Sadly the book provides too much detail for beginners its intended audience and too little high level, succinct information for experienced users. The explanations are very detailed, but quite honestly I find it hard to imagine it being a very fun book to read for newer MATLAB users.
The book title sounds exhaustive and ambitious - well it doesn't quite live up to it. While the book does touches on advanced topics such as OOP and GUI design later in the book if you somehow patiently get that fa Sadly the book provides too much detail for beginners its intended audience and too little high level, succinct information for experienced users.
While the book does touches on advanced topics such as OOP and GUI design later in the book if you somehow patiently get that far, that is , personally I don't find the book a convincing coverage of what it takes to the road of mastery.
Oct 26, Edgar Guevara rated it it was amazing. All the content follows a logical sequence. Definitely a great resource for all beginners. It makes a great textbook for teaching an introductory course in programming.
