Age group: G10-G12
This enrichment program is consisted of a series of specialized tutorials on the use of Matlab + Simulink for high school students who intend to study in the area of engineering and science at the university level. These students have good academic standing at the high school level and are able to manage extra learning challenges at a higher level than in a typical classroom setting. The ultimate goal of this program is to help students to develop sufficient knowledge and skill in quickly and accurately building Simulink models to resolve complex physic and mathematic problems, which have been major hurdles for many students in the process of transition into successful university studies.
(1) MATLB is largely used to analyze data, to develop algorithms, and to create mathematical models
(2) SUMULINK can be used to implement dynamic models and run simulations, to generate code, and to test and verify embedded systems
(3) MATLAB works with Simulink to support Model-Based Design, which is used for multi-domain simulation, automatic code generation, and test and verification of embedded systems
(5) SIMULINK provide an easy-to-use computational platform for model and simulate the dynamics of continuous or discrete-time systems.
Based on the power of computation and computational modeling provided by Matlab + Simulink, this enrichment program is designed specially to support high school and university students in their pursuit of excellence in learning. This program intends to achieve the following learning outcomes:
(1) Enhancing students’ ability to deal with complex mathematical problems, such as ordinary differential equations, advanced functions.
(2) Developing knowledge and skill to develop dynamic model of systems and processes: simplify the system, mathematically represent the dynamics, simplify the mathematical model, implement model in Simulink, validate the model and use the model for study, design, and investigation.
(3) Gaining sufficient insight knowledge and skill with Matlab + Simulink and building up sufficient capability to accurately and quickly build Simulink models.
