Numerical Simulation Basics: Accuracy and Model Validation for a Finite-difference Equation part of Teaching Computation with MATLAB:MATLAB Workshop 2023:Activities
Jim Boyle, Western Connecticut State University
This activity teaches students a few of the basic concepts for numerical simulation of physical systems by modeling the simple and well-known problem of free-fall. The recursion relation for the finite-difference ...

Chemical Kinetics lab part of Teaching Computation with MATLAB:MATLAB Workshop 2023:Activities
Bhavna Rawal, Lonestar community college, chemistry
"Iodine Clock" refers to a group of reactions which involve the mixing of two colorless solutions to produce a solution which remains colorless for a precise amount of time, then suddenly changes to a ...

Wordle GUI Application part of Teaching Computation with MATLAB:MATLAB Workshop 2023:Activities
Sarah Patterson, Virginia Military Institute
We will introduce a project in which students will use Matlab to create a Wordle game GUI application. In this project, students will need to complete a series of tasks in MATLAB, such as data management, GUI ...

Battleship part of Teaching Computation with MATLAB:MATLAB Workshop 2023:Activities
Blain Patterson, Virginia Military Institute
This activity aims to engage students in a low-stakes activity to build confidence and review basic topics including indexing matrices and vectors, extracting data from a matrix, operating on data from a matrix, ...

Example of a First Order Temperature Instrument in a Practical Situation part of Teaching Computation with MATLAB:MATLAB Workshop 2023:Activities
Luis M Vicente, Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico
This is an example adapted from the textbook "Measurement and Instrumentation Principles from Alan S. Morris". It shows the power of Matlab when working with Differential Equations, Laplace Transforms, ...

i gouirand, the UWI
The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate the use of Matlab commands for opening and processing climate data. The climate data is retrieved from https://iri.columbia.edu as a netcdf file. The main objective is ...

weiwei zhang, University of California-Riverside
This teaching activity provides a visual illustration of several major cognitive models of human memory using Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROCs) and Matlab. It is designed to show the students how various ...

Physico-chemical Oceanographic data analysis part of Teaching Computation with MATLAB:MATLAB Workshop 2023:Activities
Most Israt Jahan Mili, University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth
This activity is a part of the course that can be used for either physical oceanography (CTD data profiling) or chemical oceanography lab exercise. This is included with the real-time field sampling data that was ...

Optimal Wing Profile Design part of Teaching Computation with MATLAB:MATLAB Workshop 2023:Activities
Yong Suh, California State University-Sacramento
The mechanism of how an aircraft flies is a complex problem. One of the most well-known facts is that the profile of the wings creates a buoyancy force due to pressure differences caused by the air flows through ...

Procrustes Skull Analysis part of Teaching Computation with MATLAB:MATLAB Workshop October 2022:Activities
Emily Dosmar, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
Procrustes analysis is a form of statistical shape analysis used to analyze the distribution of a set of shapes. The goal of this assignment is to compare different skull types to a reference skull to determine ...
