errors lie in line 14 of newton_simple.m
and line 20 of newton_basic.m
however newton_simple.m is perfect as it is... I need to get newton_basic.m to work....

The best way is to learn how to use the debugger. In this instance, issuing dbstop if error and looking at the states of the variables and experimenting at the command line when the program breaks into the debugger because of the error would show you the problem.
The problem is simple, your newton_simple.m code expects two functions f and df that returns a scalar value given a scalar input. Your df function does not return a scalar value when given a scalar input because that's polyder does not return scalar values. I suspect you never meant to use polyder but who knows?
