Zero to MATLAB
The MATLAB programming language is commonly used in engineering and scientific computation. I wrote this book to give first-year students a basic introduction to MATLAB syntax and algorithmic thinking. This is by no means a comprehensive resource. It is meant to get students started and allow them to transition to more complex material.
The book is structured as a tutorial rather than a reference. The MATLAB documentation is extensive, so my focus will be to outline essential algorithmic thinking and MATLAB syntax with explicit examples. I encourage students to work through the chapters in order as each new concept builds on previous material.
