This text is intended to introduce freshman engineering students to problem solving using an m-file environment. Most of the information in this text applies to any m-file environment (MATLAB, LabVIEW MathScript, Octave, etc.). There are some differences between environments, and occasionally some material will be specific to a given environment. This material is offset from the surrounding text and labeled with the appropriate environment. For example:
MATLAB: Matlab is a commercial product of The MathWorks (http://www.mathworks.com/).
LabVIEW MathScript: LabVIEW MathScript is a commercial product of National Instruments (http://www.ni.com/).
Octave: Octave is an open source environment that is available without charge. Information about Octave is available at the Octave home page (http://www.octave.org/).
