MathWorks MATLAB Onramp Week, June 28-30 2021


June 18, 2021

Are you new to MATLAB or just want to brush up on your MATLAB skills to prepare for the next M3 Challenge? MathWorks is hosting MATLAB Onramp Summer Sessions to walk you through essentials of MATLAB and help you prepare for M3 Challenge. Join us as we take you through this interactive MATLAB Onramp training. MATLAB Onramp is a two-hour introductory tutorial. Participants will receive a certificate upon completion of this course. This course is open to teachers and students.
All participants will need a free MathWorks account. Participants can sign in or create a new account here. Participants can access MATLAB Onramp through their web browser for free once they have an account.

You can complete MATLAB Onramp independently if you choose, but if you have questions or want guidance, please JOIN the sessions below for live Q&A. Registration is NOT required for Q&A sessions, simply jump in through the links in the table.
