Take an exciting crash course in MATLAB and Octave programming. Both languages allow users to experiment with advanced mathematical functions and produce exciting matrix visualizations.
In this hands-on, self-paced introductory course, students will learn step by step how to use these mathematical tools to write functions, calculate vectors and matrices and plot graphical representations of results. Explore ways to organize your work using scripts and functions to improve productivity.
This course is stupendous for beginners it will help them to develop basics of matlab and will surely create interest among them and inspire them to do more advanced things in matalb.Will be more happy if they had included Simulink in it.
Not organised as it should be,most material is translations in English and not good at all actually.
In all,i abandoned the course after seeing the first week material and tried exercises.Nothing is clear about this course.Better try the official octave tutorials or find prof.Ng's introduction to octave from the machine learning course he gave on coursera i think it was.
The course was useful for understanding how to create functions in MATLAB. Translations to English were not the greatest however could be followed with a bit of extra effort. Activities and exercises were engaging and interesting for someone who is studying Physics.
