Teaching Computation in the Sciences Using MATLAB
In order to provide students with the computational skills they need to be successful, the teaching of computation must change to reflect the changing landscape of computation. Teaching Computation in the Sciences Using MATLAB provides resources to help educators incorporate computation into their classrooms and engage with a community of educators interested in improving the teaching of these important skills.
MATLAB is useful tool for teaching computation because it allows for robust data analysis, data visualization and exploration, modeling, and working with real data sets. If the use of MATLAB is scaffolded in a course or curriculum, it is a tool that can help students develop computational skills and build self-efficacy. When combined with collaborative learning techniques and effective assessments, MATLAB can be an effective and powerful tool for teaching computation.
