An application driven introduction to computer-aided problem solving leveraging foundational knowledge in engineering and the physical sciences. Engineering applications are used to motivate the computational methods needed in scientific and engineering disciplines. Numerical methods, including the basic LU algorithm, one-dimensional root finding methods, and numerical differentiation and integration, are introduced as useful computational tools for tackling a broad range of engineering and scientific and engineering disciplines. Numerical methods, including the basic LU algorithm, one-dimensional root finding methods, the numerical differentiation and integration , are introduced as useful computational tools for tackling a broad range of engineering and scientific applications and to provide concrete and contextual programming experiences. MATLAB is used, with topics including scripts, functions, logical expressions, conditional statements, looping, data visualization, plotting, and recursion presented within the framework provided by both the numerical methods and the scientific or engineering problems. Laboratory included.
