MATLAB RESOURCES:

A good companion book for the purpose of Matlab programming in Numerical Analysis is the book by Cleve Moler: "Numerical Computing with Matlab".

The entire book is available online for free as a collection of pdf files. The Matlab codes for all the programs are also available online.
This material is available at http://www.mathworks.com/moler/index_ncm.html

An exerpt from "A Matlab Companion for Multivariable Calculus" by Jeffery Cooper, is available online on Jeffery Cooper's webpage
at http://www-users.math.umd.edu/~jec/matlabintro.pdf.

There are many books. For example: "A guide to Matlab: for Beginners and Experienced Users", by Hunt Lipsman, and Rosenberg.
