In Class Matlab Exercise

SO503, February 2011

Download this Excel spreadsheet, with data on the growth of a trilobite species from eastern California. We will be looking at measurements of the cephalon, or "head", with the length and width.  The spreadsheet has measurements for 18 fossils.  You should ignore the single values for 4 other species.

You are to do the following, and turn in a Word file with the requirements below.  Include an Appendix with an m-file that accomplishes as much of the task as possible.  For any actions not done in Matlab, insure that you include comments in the m-file that would enable someone else to duplicate your tasks with another data file, potentially much longer.
