Matlab is an open source program that allows you to use the same language to run almost anything. From simple text documents to complex graphics. Most education uses Matlab as a teaching tool, but even so, if you don’t already know the language, there are some things you should know about the language.
First off, matrix math is a type of math that’s used a lot in educational environments. It’s a system of getting numbers, colors, or objects, into a matrix. You basically get a series of numbers, colored, and a number that tells you how many cells that the colored cell contains. The basic idea is to put the matrix in the main window and have that represent the entire piece of work.
The color is represented by putting each value of the matrix on a different line. In order for that information to be read, you need to use matrix editors. These are not the same as your normal word processors, but allow you to go through the matrix by line, and manipulate the data, such as switching colors, changing values, etc.
Usually, you’ll have a matrix editor for a piece of work. Most of the time it will be different for each subject, but at least you’ll have one. Matlab provides this ability, but can’t handle all of the matrix editing.
Matlab also doesn’t give you the ability to do any text formatting. This includes font styles, color schemes, the text size, and the bold and italic.
If you want to change the text, you’ll have to use matrix editors. However, if you want to use matlab for any other purpose, such as drawing, there are lots of functions that you can use to get exactly what you want.
You can also use formulas to change the colors. If you change a formula, such as x+2, you can’t just change one cell, but you can change a selection of colors. This is the same as using the delete function, except that it actually changes the entire line.
Another example of matlab being useful in doing LED Projects is when you’re trying to move two objects together. There are two ways to do this, one with matrix editing, and one without.
With matrix editing, you select one of the two objects, and you hit the matrix editor button on the toolbar. Then you have the ability to change the colors and to move them closer or farther apart. This is a wonderful way to move objects together without having to use an editor, and at the same time, change the colors.
You can also use matrix editors to replace text, like replacing the number ‘one’ with ‘two’. With matrix editing, you don’t need to go through matrix editors to change the number.
Without matrix editors, you’d have to go to a matrix editor in order to change the number. You’d be using matrix editors for everything.
