Wikiversity resources to help you learn and use MATLAB
- Getting started will guide (and link) you through the MathWorks tutorial.
- It is also worth glancing at Top 10 Do's, Don'ts, and How Tos (sic)
- The MATLAB Cookbook contains snippets of useable code that you can copy/paste/modify
- MATLAB essential, which is a course aimed at college-level students
Wikiversity MATLAB projects
- Engineering thermodynamics is an ongoing effort to create tables and graphs for Engineering thermodynamics
- Divergent series investigations is advanced and weird -- physics at its best (or worst!)
- Sound/Just and equal tuning
- Wikiquiz writer (MATLAB) can be used to write a randomized testbank for a quiz that involves numerical answers.
MATLAB/Octave tells you how to install Octave on a Windows machine. Use it if you do not have ready access to MATLAB, or use it instead of MATLAB just for fun. Also, it is possible to write a wikiquiz with testbank using Octave. See for example this Physics quiz.
- If you use GNU Octave, a few UNIX-like commands are needed when working in the shell:
- GNU Octave is available at http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/. If you have Windows you need to look at http://wiki.octave.org/Octave_for_Windows and download Octave from: http://sourceforge.net/projects/octave/files/Octave%20Windows%20binaries/
- Notepad++ can be downloaded at http://notepad-plus-plus.org/
- http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Python_(programming_language)&oldid=636392303 Your teachers are right not to let you reference Wikipedia/Wikiersity. If you know of a more reliable source become an editor and pitch in!
- The MATLAB tutorial be found at http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/getting-started-with-matlab.html.
- Keep in mind that Octave cannot do everything that MATLAB can do.
