COURSE EXPECTATIONS
In absence of a university wide policy on tardeness, students are let to enter the class room at any time
- better late than never. No visits to restrooms are allowed during examination time. Policies on credit
for Lab and homework reports are stated on pages 4 and 5 respectively; full credit is assigned only under
exceptional circumstances. No extra credit. Attendance is taken only to encourage students to attend it works.
GRADING
No weights are involved. Credit points are equal to percentages, since full credit for the course is 100
points. Distribution of points over Homeworks/Lab/Midterms/Final is shown on page 3. Credits for
Homework and Lab reports are provided one week after reports’ due date. Credits for midterms are
provided during the next class following the midterm.
Midterm Grading
Distribution of the midterms’ total numbers of points between three problems depends on
the content of problems which is variable from semester to semester. Students’
performance on midterms shows whether they are studying during the whole semester.
Final Grading
Distribution of the final’s total number of points between three problems depends on the
content of problems which changes from semester to semester.
COMMUNICATION GUIDELINES
Email adresses and phone numbers of the instructor, and Lab assistants and graders are displayed on
pages 3 and 4.
STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES
Students with inadequate preparation in Mathematics and Physics can benefit from tutoring provided by
the institution’s academic and student support services. EECS department does not maintain additional
activities other than instructors’ and GAs’ office hours.
COURSE SCHEDULE
The course calendar by textbook chapter topics per semester weeks is shown on page 3.
Alignment of textbook topics with SLOs is not a straight forward matter for a number of reasons.
Description of SLO assessment methods occupies a few pages in the ABET assessment report.

Prelab Assignment. To improve the ratio of the time spent building the experimental circuit on the
protoboard to the time devoted to the educational experience through experiments on the built circuit,
students are required to prepare (carries 25% of the grade) a good quality, computer generated drawing
of the physical layout of circuits to be built.
Lab report: Computer generated Lab reports are required for full credit. For details, please see the
course webpage.
Grading Policy: Prelab Assignment / Lab Experiment / Lab Report = 0.5 / 0.75 / 0.75.

The minimum required homework set is the result of a compromise made with the past generations of
students who had complained that the double number of problems presented them with too much work.
Current students willing to acquire a solid knowledge of the subject are strongly advised to solve twice
as many problems, including those from past exams posted on the course homepage.
3.2
Policy on credit for homework assignments
For full credit on problem solutions:
3.21 give answers to all questions,
3.22 show the original and auxiliary circuit models with circuiit elements labelled by
their parameters (which are not the parameter values),
3.23 indicate in the circuit model the positive reference directions of all voltages and
currents which are involved in the solution process,
3.24 provide all symbolic and numerical expressions whose evaluation produces
shown numerical results,
3.25 apply the determinant method for solving sets of simultaneous algebraic
equations.

3.3Policy on submission of Homework Reports
3.31 This policy promotes good planning habits. The fact that something went
wrong the morning of the due day does not make a case for delaying the due
time. We ought to be prepared for the day when something unusual happens.
3.32 All homework reports (solutions) are due at the beginning of the last class of
the week.
3.33 In order to discourage the practice of preparing the reports during the time
scheduled for classes, the absolute deadline for handing in the homework
reports is five minutes after the time scheduled for the beginning of the class.
3.34 Homework reports handed in after the deadline, but before the beginning of
the first class of the next week are accepted for half credit.
3.35 Homework reports are not considered turned in if they are not completly
covered by a completely filled out cover sheet posted at the course webpage.
