Teaching Physics with MATLAB

Register to watch video

Jerry Brusher, MathWorks
Deepak Ramaswamy, MathWorks

In this webinar, you will learn how you and your students can benefit from incorporating computation based on MATLAB in your physics curriculum.  Webinar highlights include examples that demonstrate
- First-principles modeling
- Modeling paradigms
- Black box modeling

We will show that MATLAB enables your students to improve their conceptual understanding and build proficiency with computational tools by  

  • Performing interactive simulations
  • Solving problems numerically or analytically
  • Extracting, analyze, and visualize experimental data
  • Modeling and simulating phenomena to build intuition
  • Expressing and simulating equations to test hypotheses
  • Simulating analytical models to test predictions

In this webinar, you will also learn about MATLAB resources to use in developing your teaching Physics curriculum.
