Overview of this book

MATLAB is the language of choice for many researchers and mathematics experts for machine learning. This book will help you build a foundation in machine learning using MATLAB for beginners. You’ll start by getting your system ready with t he MATLAB environment for machine learning and you’ll see how to easily interact with the Matlab workspace. We’ll then move on to data cleansing, mining and analyzing various data types in machine learning and you’ll see how to display data values on a plot. Next, you’ll get to know about the different types of regression techniques and how to apply them to your data using the MATLAB functions. You’ll understand the basic concepts of neural networks and perform data fitting, pattern recognition, and clustering analysis. Finally, you’ll explore feature selection and extraction techniques for dimensionality reduction for performance improvement. At the end of the book, you will learn to put it all together into real-world cases covering major machine learning algorithms and be comfortable in performing machine learning with MATLAB.

Identifying student groups using fuzzy clustering

An effective didactic activity presupposes in-depth and methodical programming. Didactic programming aims to develop a series of coordinated actions that contribute to achieving, through efficiency and cost-effectiveness, a goal. It allows the teacher to overcome improvisation, operational causalities, and to organize rationally and consistently the educational interventions, to organize the content and the various school activities, including verifications. Programming, therefore, adjusts programs to students, identifies interdisciplinary links, and chooses methodologies that effectively facilitate the process of learning and growth, as well as cultural, emotional, relational, and civil. In the following figure, different degrees of motivation in a classroom are depicted:
