For Freshman or Introductory courses in Engineering and Computer Science.
With a hands-on approach and focus on problem solving, this introduction to the powerful Matlab computing language is designed for students with only a basic college algebra background. Numerous examples are drawn from a range of engineering disciplines, demonstrating Matlab’s applications to a broad variety of problems. Appropriate for beginning students, the book assumes a basic understanding of college algebra and computers.

"As the author states in the ‘About This Book’ section, many students entering the engineering field today do not have a background to programming, let alone the knowledge of a specific program such as MATLAB. This text is an excellent tutorial for them to not only understand the MATLAB environment, but how it can be helpful for solving engineering, chemistry, and/or physics-related problems." ? Richard Clark, Virginia Western Community College
"The end-of-the-chapter homework problems are very good. I really like the fact they are from various engineering fields that the student’s are likely to do later on. Just like the illustrative examples in the chapters, the homework problems are very interesting." ? Ram Narasimhan, University of Miami
"This book really stood out when I was making my textbook selection. I really like the in-depth examples in the text as well as the concept-check practice exercises." ? April Andreas, McLennan Community College
"I very, very much like the selection of problems. I can always find something interesting and challenging." ? April Andreas, McLennan Community College
