Mischa Kim, MathWorks
Research shows that experimenting in teaching can support the student learning progress and foster competences. As a result, experiments are frequently used as a motivational instrument.
In this webinar we will first present some didactics aspects of experimenting. We will then show how you to efficiently create, perform and evaluate experiments with the MathWorks tool suite. We will model and analyze a dynamical system in the symbolic math realm and use conversion tools to readily create numerical, graphical, and physical models. The simulations are finally compared with the corresponding hardware experiment.
