How to get the most out of the labs

Some of you may be doing these labs for credit in the course, others may be doing them to learn how to use Matlab on your own or as you are working in a lab. To get the most out of the labs:

  • Type in the example code yourself, rather than cutting and pasting. If you type it out yourself, you'll start to develop familiarity with the language.

  • Make sure you go slowly enough for the material to sink in. We all get used to skimming web pages, but you'll get more out of the tutorial if you can slow yourself down and think as you read.

  • Even if you are not taking the course for credit, answer the questions as you go. This will help to ensure that you are thinking about the material as you go.
