I have a (beginners) matlab assignment and I'm having trouble getting started. I was given a 3 page xls called grades.xls. I'm supposed to create an .m file that will recreate the xls (including its 3-page layout) using cell arrays. The data from the xls will/should be hard-keyed into the .m file because the assignment is teaching about cell arrays and not file i/o.
In the .xls, the first column on each page is student names (and they're the same on each page). On the first page is a column for homework averages and a column for test averages (all numeric) of the grades (numeric) recorded on the next two pages. On the the second page are columns of their homework scores, and on the third page are columns of their test scores.
I'm not asking for details on how to do this, because I need to learn this stuff, but I do need help with an overall strategy to use.
