Teaching with MATLAB and Simulink: Getting Your Students from Which Equation? to Which Principle?

Justification and features:

In this technical session, we demonstrate how you can use MATLAB to shift your students’ focus from mathematical manipulation to problem formulation and visualization. We explore how Symbolic Math Toolbox, Simscape, and SimMechanics can help students to better understand concepts and apply them to problem-solving. We show you how these computational tools can improve comprehension by enabling students to explore and visualize fundamental principles, and then systematically apply these to the analysis and design of complex systems.

Examples are drawn primarily from the field of dynamic systems.
