Virtual Academy: “Integrating computational thinking and interactive learning in curriculum using MATLAB”
Mon, Jun 17, 2019 3:30 PM IST
Computational thinking is a process for formulating problems and their solutions. The concept involves applying traditional computer programming techniques when solving mathematical, scientific, and engineering problems by expressing them in a programming language or other runnable application software. This approach enables students solve small and large problems in logical, scalable ways.
In this webinar, we will discuss how MATLAB can serve as the gateway to teach students this approach using examples from undergraduate curriculum. At the end of the session, participants will be able to do mathematical operations along with solving differential equations and learn how to approach a problem computationally. Finally, they will be able to create an app using app designer and learn interactive teaching using live editor.
Disciplines: Any science or engineering background
