Welcome! Here, you will find the latest
news and announcements regarding ECE4330
Policy on smart/cell phones: It is very
simple, switch it off and place it in your bag for the whole duration of the
lecture.
Tuesday, December 22
5:30 – 7:30pm
(Room to be announced)
The Final Exam covers all Lectures
NO student will be allowed to
leave the classroom for the duration of the exam (so, plan accordingly). Cell
phones and smart watches must be powered off and placed in your back bag. You
will have no access to your back bag once the exam starts.
Bring a basic scientific
calculator just in case you are allowed to use it. No calculators with
document storage capabilities are allowed.
Closed Book and
Notes. You may use Tables (hard copies with absolutely no additional written or
typed material) printed from the course web page. A onesided 8.5”x11” sheet of
FORMULAs and concepts (NOT
solved examples) is allowed. You may
NOT use a smart phone as a
calculator. All cell phones and “smart watches” must be put away in your bag.
You are not allowed to borrow a calculator. No other materials and electronic
gadgets are allowed.
For online exams, please refer to the Online Exam Rules.
Test # 1: (Thursday, October 8)

Cell phones and smart watches
must be powered off and placed in your back bag. You will have no access to
your back bag once the exam starts.

(I suggest that you review the methods of analysis of linear
circuits that you studied in circuit analysis courses. Here are some worked examples utilizing the Laplace
method for you to study.)
Quiz yourself on the Laplace
Transform and LTI System Analysis. You should be able to indicate the correct
answers using shortcuts or qualitative arguments.

As long as WSU is conducting classes remotely, you are to email your assignment solutions (as a pdf file who’s name should be “Assignment#_your name”) to the grader on the due date listed below. Try to email your solutions to the grader at least 30 min before the lecture starts.
NOTE: Any copying (form existing solutions, from other
students or from Chegg.com and the likes) will lead to a zero on the assignment
for the first offence, and the second offence may result in you failing the
course and being reported to the college/university.

If you feel that the examples in the lectures and in your textbook are not
sufficient for you, then you may want to obtain the following reference: Signals
and Systems (Schaum’s Outlines), H. P. Hsu
(McGrawHill). (Any 1^{st}, 2^{nd} or 3^{rd}
edition copy will do. However, the 3^{rd} edition comes with video
solutions to some problems. 1^{st} edition can be purchased for few
dollars through Amazon)

Very Important: Your Professor is known to be very strict when it comes to attendance
and deadlines. He expects you to conduct yourself as a professional. Here are
few examples:

He does not accept assignments submitted on the due date after he
starts the lecture.

If he sets a submission date for an assignment (say bonus problem) to
be received by email before 5:00 pm on a certain day and you submit at 5:01pm
then he would not accept your submission.
 Arrive more than 5 minutes late to class and you will be counted absent and lose points (1% of your final average is subtracted for each unexcused absence. Note: for online teaching sessions and in order not to incur the above penalties, the student must join the online lecture within 5 min before lecture starts, be present (and have their camera turned on) for the full duration of the lecture for the full duration of the lecture.


In case of an emergency, you must email him about your absence before
class and you must bring with you a legitimate documentation for your absence
(e.g., doctor’s note, court note, etc.)
