    STUDENT NAME: Antonio Medrano

    DATE COMPLETED: 4/10/08



    Page #1: Preliminaries

    1/1: Just displaying stuff...

    1/2: Now it's your turn...

    1/3: Booleans

    1/4: For loops and basic statistics

    1/5: Sorting

    1/6: Median

    1/7: Logic

    1/8: More logic and logs

    2/1: Histograms

    2/2: Density Histograpms

    Section 3 prep

    3/1: Stem plots

    3/2: Annotations

    3/3: Histogram Comparison

    3/4: Box Plots

    3/5: QQ-Plots

    3/6: more QQ-plots

    3/7: Gaussian comparison

    3/8: Printing graphs to files


    Copy this M-file into your working directory C:\Workspace, rename it as, say, lab01.m, and

    use it as a template, i.e., append the appropriate Matlab commands, to complete each Lab


    From Matlab, open this file using the Matlab Editor. DO NOT open this file by double

    clicking it with your mouse outside Matlab.

    Remember to enable cell mode in the Matlab Editor. A cell is a group of Matlab commands,

    whose start is designated with 2 percent signs %% You can highlight each cell by clicking on

    it with the mouse, and then evaluate/execute ONLY that cell (Control + Enter) as you

    proceed in completing your Lab assignment.

    Use a single percent sign % to include comments/answers in your M-file. Anything after (to

    the right of) % is treated as a comment, i.e., not considered a Matlab command.

  • You could try to answer each Lab question in the Matlab command window. Once you have

    decided on the correct Matlab syntax, copy that command in your M-file for the

    corresponding Lab.

    Publishing to html:

    The completed M-file can be converted into an html file containing all your Matlab

    commands, comments, command output, and figures, using Matlab's publishing utility. This

    can be done using:

    File -> Publish to HTML

    and automatically creates a folder called html in your Matlab working directory. This folder

    contains the html file, as well as a suite of associated image files (.png files), if your M-file

    contains commands that produce graphical output, such as command plot. Note that you can

    also publish your M-file into other formats, such as pdf or Powerpoint; see File ->

    Publish To

    You can insert a variety of text formats in your M-file, using:

    Cell -> Insert Text Markup

    the differences between the above text formats are only visible in the published html file.

    For example, you can have a bulleted list with:

    boldface text

    italisized text

    monospaced text; this is typically reserved for Matlab commands

    What to turn in:

    For each Lab assignment, send an e-mail to the READER with:

    (i) a M-file containig the appropriate Matlab commands

    (ii) a .zip archive of the above html folder published via Matlab

    Collaboration is encouraged, but each student needs to submit his or her own M-file and

    .zip archive to the Reader

    Good luck, and remember to put your name at the top of this file...
