Starting MatLab

Follow the Computer Lab Guide (click here to view) which was distributed in class to login and set up the printer in the computer lab for your use.  Open up the 21D folder under the hard drive icon. Start MATLAB by clicking on the file start-matlab.m

Turning in Assignments

Start Word by clicking on the file homework-template.doc. Use this file to store the relevant input and results of your MATLAB session. Use the cut and paste to do this. Print your file with the Laser Printer and hand in your work in Thursday's section.
