Since MATLAB has had the capability to publish M-files, we have seen publishing being adopted at many educational institutions. And there is a variety of ways for you
to find out just what’s been published out there, perhaps so you can leverage it.
First, how can you find published M-files on the web? Here are some techniques.
- From the MATLAB Central Metrics page, select Web Demos and then look at the Domain Index.
- Using Google (search for “Published with MATLAB”) or look at the MathWorks-generated Web Demos index.
You’ll find pointers to a lot of educational sites at the web demos index. I know that some good files are to be found at
- Sussex, and
But you can just poke around and find a lot of good stuff up and down this list. Here’s a really good site I noticed recently
for teaching Calculus.
I’ve been very happy, as I look at the web demos coming in, to see that published M-files are being used by professors more
and more. Some of them are lovely and well made. Here are a few favorites of mine:
People seem to be using published M-files for educational purposes in three ways, sometimes melding together the first two.
- demos, concepts, explanations, class notes
- homework assignments
- adminstering exams
Sometimes they’re used for homework assignments. Here are some examples from NJIT.
- MATLAB introduction
- Newton’s method
- Numerical integration
- Taylor series
And sometimes they’re even used for exams.
If you use publishing for some aspect of school work, post here and please post 1 (one) URL to your own best site. Please also post a URL to a site (new to you perhaps) that uses |publish
and you think has material potentially useful to you and others.
