discovery linear algebra/dif eq text using matlab

Hello. My name is James Sheldon and I'm a 2nd year Computer Science
student. I'm doing an independent study project for my Engineering
Mathematics course.

I'm looking for a discovery-based, learning by induction approach
textbook(s) that utilizes Matlab for linear algebra and/or
differential equations.

I also would like it to include material on the history and/or
philosophy of math and include some stuff on techniques of proof but
these two things aren't really that necessary they would just be nice.

I'd also like to know what the research literature says about
discovery-based learning in linear algebra and differential equations.
Has it been shown to work well, especially for Computer Science and
Computer Engineering students?

Please CC your response to as well as replying
to the list since I might not get back here in time to see your
message even though it looks like a really interesting email list and
I've found a lot of neat stuff searching the archives.

James Sheldon
