MATLAB Courseware

MATLAB is used by many Economics educators to teach computation due to its built-in capabilities for working with time series data, performing fast numerical computations, and visualizing results of analyses. MATLAB’s graphical desktop environment encourages exploration and learning for students with little to no programming background, while offering the full potential of the MATLAB language.

Educators have created many econometrics resources that are available for adoption and modification for use in future courses.
