Grading: Homework 10%
Labs (9) 20%
Exam1 20%
Exam2 20%
Exam3 30%
Homework:
Assignments and solutions will be posted on web site only.
Your homework solutions must be handed in in your lecture section.
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 13.
Homework solutions username/password: _________ / __________
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 and exam2,
and two for exam3. (One sheet would probably suffice though.)
The in-class exams will be mostly, if not entirely, multiple choice.
Midterms (held in class; you must attend your official lecture section)
Fri Feb 10
Fri Mar 17
Final (will be cumulative though emphasizing latter part of course, room TBD):
Date and time to be announced later.
Lab (2331 EECS, 615-1797)
Lab0 begins Jan 10.
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.
Dialogue and email
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!
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 me 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.
Past semester's top ranked students did not have perfect lab scores!
