MathWorks MATLAB Onramp Week, August 2-4 2021


July 29, 2021

MathWorks Math Modeling (M3) Challenge invites you to attend the MATLAB Onramp Summer Sessions. You will walk through the essentials of MATLAB in a two-hour introductory tutorial that can be completed independently, but the sessions offer interactive MATLAB training and guidance. This free course is open to teachers and students, and especially focused on the sixth form level.  

Participants can sign in or create a new free MathWorks account here:
