## Notes from Instructor:

The main reason for writing this course is because I really enjoy making a difference. I have been promoted to an auto-patrolled editor at Wikipedia after my several contributions to many Engineering articles were publsihed. However, most of the articles that I have worked on have an enormous amount of information now. For that reason, I have decided to focus on another project. What motivates me the most is the feedback that I get from readers. For that reason, I URGE you to write your opinion about this course in the comments.

You may notice that there are a lot of links to MATLAB’ s Wikibooks page. There are four significant differences between Wikibooks and this course.

1_ Wikiversity is more interactive. In Wikiversity, you can e mail the instructor if you have a question.

2_ This course has a lot of visual aids, while MATLAB ‘s page on Wikibooks does not any.

3_ There is a quiz after every two lectures in this course.

4_ In general, Wikibooks contains more information about MATLAB than this course; however, a lot of information that is taught here, are not be mentioned in Wikibooks, and vice versa. It is best to use both sources to learn MATLAB
