Midterms (with tentative room assignments)
October 3rd (6-7:30PM):
CHRYS 220 234 (Section 1)
EECS 1200 Holds: 107 (Section 2, A-L)
EECS 1500 130 (Section 2, M-Z)
November 7th (6-7:30PM):
CHRYS 220 234 (Section 1)

EECS 1500 130 (Section 2, M-Z)
Students with conflicts for these midterm times must make alternate
arrangements with Prof. Hero before Sep. 27.
Final (will be cumulative though emphasizing latter part of course):
12/16/02 from 4-6pm (the time listed for the 001 section).
All students in 206 are expected to take the final exam during that time.
Only those students from sec 002 with legitimate conflicts (more than 2 exams
on that day or less than 1.5 hours between exams) will be eligible for
alternative arrangements. Such alternative arrangements need to be made
with Prof. Fessler *before* the end of September.
Lectures
Section 1, 10:30-11:30 1504 GGB, Hero
Section 2, 2:30-3:30 1500 EECS, Fessler
Students may attend either lecture section, space permitting.
Office hours
See web site: http://www.eecs.umich.edu/courses/eecs206/

Books for EECS 206 on reserve at UMMU:
Alan V Oppenheim Alan S Willsky S Hamid Nawab
Signals and systems, Prentice-Hall 1997
Alan V Oppenheim Ronald W. Schafer
Discrete-time signal processing, Prentice-Hall, 1989
J H McClellan R W Schafer M A Yoder
DSP first, a multimedia approach, Prentice-Hall, 1998
And numerous Matlab manuals / books!
Lab (2331 EECS)
Important part of course: hands-on experience with real signals.
Each GSI will introduce the lab assignments and Matlab commands.
Work in groups of two, submitting single lab report (for same score).
Turn in lab reports at next lab's start. Late lab reports unacceptable.
There will be 9 lab reports. Other weeks will be exam review.
Reserved for 206 during lab sessions, otherwise CAEN lab.
Attendance in lab is not mandatory, but is highly recommended!
Collaboration
All homework assignments are to be completed on your own. You may
consult with other students (and GSI's) during the conceptualization of
a solution, but all written work, whether in scrap or final form, must
be generated by you working alone. Violation of this policy will be
treated as an honor code violation.
If you have questions about this policy, please do not hesitate to
contact the instructors.
The same policy applies to laboratory assignments, except of course
that lab partners in a team are permitted to work jointly.
