This is a textbook for an undergraduate course on scientific computing. The book is aimed at science and engineering majors who wish to learn the ideas behind elementary scientific computation, including understanding how the best numerical software works. The topics covered in the book give a broad enough coverage to present the basic ideas of scientific computing and some of the theory behind it to students who have taken only the courses in univariate calculus in addition to high school mathematics. Computational examples and exercises use MATLAB.
