Session Descriptions
MATLAB I: This workshop will cover the basics of MATLAB. By the end of this workshop, attendants will get familiar with basic level arithmetic, data structures, and some matrix algebra. We will cover for/while loops if time permits. Only basic competency with computers is assumed.
MATLAB II: This workshop will cover user-defined functions. Basic competency with MATLAB is assumed.
MATLAB III: This workshop will cover data visualization. Basic competency with MATLAB is assumed.
Mathematica I: This workshop will cover the basics of Mathematica. By the end of this workshop, attendants will get familiar with basic level arithmetic, data structures, and matrix algebra
Mathematica II: This workshop will cover basics of user-defined functions in Mathematica. Only basic competency with Mathematica is assumed.
Mathematica III: This workshop will cover data visualization. Only basic competency with Mathematica is assumed.
LaTeX I: This workshop will cover the basics of latex including installation and basic commands. By the end of this workshop, attendants will be able to put together a basic document containing properly typeset equations. We will also cover enumerations and lists if time permits. This would be useful for homework, writing papers, creating resumes, etc. Only basic competency with computers is assumed.
LaTeX II: We will go more in depth on LaTeX's features. These include tables, figures, subfigures, and more advanced mathematical typesetting. We will also discuss creating custom, user-defined commands. Basic competency with LaTeX is assumed
LaTeX III: This session will cover using LaTeX to create technical presentations using Beamer. Basic competency with LaTeX is assumed
