This is the first time MathWorks is offering MATLAB in the cloud and zyBooks isĀ one of the first partners to offer it integrated within the book.

Examples

The zyBooks Approach

Provides interactive learning of programming foundations and MATLAB. The material emphasizes a solid understanding of 1D and 2D arrays, teaching effective use of the array/matrix operations that make MATLAB such a powerful engineering tool. Numerous applications demonstrate the usefulness of arrays in practice. The material covers key programming constructs (scripts, functions, branches, loops, etc.), cell arrays, GUIs, and much more. Includes numerous accompanying MATLABĀ problems with real-time feedback through the integrated homework system.
