Assignments

(Solve only the even
numbered problems and the problems on even numbered slides. The odd numbered
problems you can solve as you prepare yourself for exams, but you are not to turn
them in for grading. The solutions to all problems in a given assignment will
be posted after you turn in that assignment.)

**DO NOT COPY FROM OLD SOLUTIONS! ALL WORK MUST BE 100% YOURS.**

All assignments are
due in hard copy form before lecture starts

**Assignment 0:** Must be completed before the beginning of
the second week of classes.

1. Purchase, download and install Multisim
(student version) on your PC.

2. Download (free) and install Mathcad on your
PC: Mathcad 2001**Note:** Make sure you unzip the downloaded folder before installation. To
install Mathcad, double-click the file “Mathcad 2001 Professional” (located
