May 3  Matlab Practical Quiz: Pick a nonlinear function of your choice (One that you can find derivative for by hand), we are going to approximate the derivative using central difference formulas we learned in class. Your output will look like a table of 3 columns, one for h (step size), the second column shows the exact derivative value, and the last for the approximated derivative.
