Educators in disciplines across the Sciences use MATLAB. Their main objective is to teach scientific concepts while instilling quantitative thinking in their students.  To achieve that goal, educators must teach (and students must learn) computational skills and how to use them to express, analyze, and model scientific phenomena.

From code examples and how-to videos, to teaching activities, to assessment and auto-grading tools, there are multiple resources and tools to support learning in and out of the classroom. These resources lessen the educators’ workloads.

Whether you’re an individual educator, a member of a department-wide team, or a curriculum developer, these teaching resources can help you effectively teach the triad of science, analytical thinking, and computational skills.
