I think a lot about how to best teach MATLAB. It took me 18 years to learn what I know about MATLAB, I keep hoping I can teach all of it in a three day class. So far, it has never worked! The folks at Khan Academy
think about this too. I was watching one of their videos
. It dealt with a fun little game: Ulam Spiral
I wanted to explore this, tweak some variables and see how I can tune parameters interactively in MATLAB.
After filming this, Scott taught me that if you select a number and hold down the Control Key, you can use the scroll wheel on your mouse to change the number also!
