### Matlab Tutorial

I will give a brief introduction to Matlab. If you have a laptop with Matlab you are encouraged to bring it (although it is not necessary). You can obtain matlab from MyAndrew . I will post my notes along with previous matlab recitation materials on this page after recitation.

### VPN Setup

To run matlab from off campus you will need to setup CiscoVPN which can be obtained here. If you have problems, please contact the CMU help center.
