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 one-sided 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)

(5:30-7:10)

(Room to be announced)

Covers Lectures 1-9 and

you should also be prepared to perform circuit analysis in the time- and s-domain as you have learned in ECE3300 (Lectures 9 & 10)

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.

Closed Book and Notes. You may NOT use a calculator,

Math tables (hard copies printed from the course web page, with no additional material added to it) and a two-sided 3”x5” index card with notes and formulas, but no solved problems are allowed on the exam.

 

Test # 2: (Thursday, November 12)

You must show your professor that your cell phone(s) and “smart watch” are OFF and tugged away in your bag.

(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.

 

 

Assignments:

Assignment 1: Solve the (even numbered problems) of the following “Your Turn” problems from Lectures 1-3. Solutions to selected problems.

Solved and Practice Problems: 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 (McGraw-Hill). (Any 1st, 2nd or 3rd edition copy will do. However, the 3rd edition comes with video solutions to some problems. 1st 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.)
