Homework
Assignments and solutions will be posted on web site only.
Homework solutions must be put in the appropriate slot in 2420 EECS.
Graded homework will be returned in lab sections.
Lab section # required at top of each HW solution (or -10 points).
The first homework is available online and is due Fri. Jan 10.
Homework solutions username/password: _________ / __________
Homework "Emergency Pass" policy
Each student may submit one "Emergency Pass" to exclude a particular
homework assignment from the final HW percentage computation.
To exercise this option, you must submit the "Emergency Pass" form
(print from web site) within 6 days of the due date/time of the HW.
(You may exercise this option even if you handed in the HW on time.)
Exams will cover all aspects of the course: lectures, homework, book, and labs.
Matlab-related questions are likely on the exams.
Closed book / notes. Bring a calculator that does complex math.
One 8.5"x11" "cheat sheet" (both sides) for exam1, two for exam2,
and three for exam3. (One sheet would probably suffice though.)
The exams will be mostly, if not entirely, multiple choice.
Some (specified) questions will have multiple answers, and for
these questions (only) it will be possible to earn partial credit.
Midterms (with tentative room assignments):
Feb 6 (6-8PM):
1013 Dow (Holds 164) (Section 1)
1109 FXB (Holds 150) (Section 2)
Mar 17 (6-8PM):
1013 Dow (Holds 164) (Section 1)
1109 FXB (Holds 150) (Section 2)
Students with conflicts for these midterm times must pre-register
on the web site for a possible alternate exam time BEFORE Jan. 24.
After an alternate time is announced (if any), students who wish
to take the alternate time must register on the web site by
the deadline that will be announced later.
Final (will be cumulative though emphasizing latter part of course):
Wed. 4/23/03 from 4-6pm (the time listed for the 001 section).
1013 Dow (Holds 164) (Section 1)
1610 IOE (Holds 144) (Section 2)
If needed: 3433 EECS (Holds 23) (Section ?)
All students in 206 must take the final exam during that time.
Only 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
must be made with Prof. Fessler *before* the end of January.
Dialogue
Classes this large can seem impersonal, and using email makes it
more so. I will read email sent to me, but I will only reply (to
the entire class) for matters that affect the whole class such as
typos in a HW problem. Please come to my office hours, tell me
your name, and ask questions, and there I will gladly reply in person!
Books on reserve at UMMU for EECS 206:
Schaum's outline of theory and problems of signals and systems

Numerous Matlab manuals / books!
Lab (2331 EECS)
Lab0 begins the first week of class! (OK to attend any section.)
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 or 10 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 that lab
partners in a team are permitted to work jointly.
Strategies for Success
1. Do homework by yourself. Your friends/GSIs cannot help on the exam.
2. Ask the GSIs about fundamental concepts & related examples,
instead of "tell how to solve it."
3. Do practice problems from CD-ROM.
4. Spend more time on the HW than on the labs because the exams
are based mostly on the HW and the exams weigh in more than the labs.
Last semester's top ranked students did not have perfect lab scores!
Late withdrawals
I will check "do not recommend" on "late withdrawal" forms.
