The course introduces students into creating technical and professional documents on computers or Web and into realizing technical computations with the use of computers. Students gain practical skills by creating an essay in a text editor, by realizing technical computations with a spreadsheet calculator, and by creating and presenting a web page.
Active work on exercises
- Syllabus of lectures:
1 Working with text editors, advanced use of MS Word. Equation editor, tables, drawing, styles, templates, etc.
2 Scientific and engineering resources on the internet. Reasonable queries on Google. Scopus, IEEE explorer. References in the MS Word. Introduction into MS Powerpoint.
3-4 MS Excel: data import and export, data visualization by graphs. Use for data from labs and their evaluation. Work with texts. Work with (not only economic) tables, filters, conditional formatting, processing data using supplementary calculated columns. Graphs of 2D and 3D functions. Matrix functions.
5 Introduction into Matlab (matrix functions, vectors, graph of e function, work with graphs). Simulink, simple model of a dynamic system, defined by a differential equation.
