Course Announcements:

Course Description:CS 368 gives students an introduction to problem solving and programming techniques using MATLAB. Techniques are illustrated using sample problems drawn from elementary engineering and computer science. Emphasis is on introduction of algorithms with the use of MATLAB to illustrate the methods. The course is offered Credit/No Credit and may not be taken for a grade. Prereqs: Some programming experience is assumed; one semester of calculus (Math 221) is useful. Students are expected to be able to draw upon information from prior (high school) math and science classes. Topics:
Textbook:There is no required textbook. The course readings available online provide much information regarding how to solve problems using MATLAB. They include Learning Objectives, Lesson text, Examples, and Exercises. To get the most out of this resource, complete the examples and exercises in MATLAB before lecture for that week. Course Grading:Your grade is based on:
Students meeting both of the following requirements will receive 1 credit (i.e., a grade of CR) for the course:
If a student misses more than 3 lectures, then for each lecture missed (beyond 3), the cumulative score on the assignments required to earn credit for the class is increased by 5 points. For example, if a student attends 10 of the 15 lectures, credit will be given if the cumulative score on the assignments is 80% or better.
