Master thesis defense - Allan Finnich


In 2009 I began my physics education at the University of Copenhagen. In connection to the laboratory part, of the very first attended course Mek1 on introductory physics, we were to use the CAS-software Matlab and apply error analysis with little instruction herein. Personally, this gave rise to much frustration. This experience inspired the idea to author teachings materials on the basic use of Matlab and data analysis to help future students avoid the frustration I felt. The teaching materials authored were a book title “Grundlæggende Matlab og dataanalyse” (the book) and in total 11 screencasts: Both conveyed the same in terms of basicMatlab but the screencasts did not present any statistical background.
