Fall Semester 2009
No prior knowledge about electricity or electronics is required. The class makes extensive use of:
- Complex numbers
I will use the material with freedom, sticking to the details at times and not so much at others.
Leonard S. Bobrow, "Fundamentals of electronics engineering", Second edition, 1996, Oxford University Press.
- Lecture notes available on the lectures page.
- Lecture slides designe by Kai Martens and available on the lectures page.
- Lab manuals will be handed out and are available on the labs page.
This is a lab oriented course, hence the heavy weight of lab work in the grade.
TAs run the lab. They give credit or not. There is not partial credit. TAs decide whether what you have to show is good enough on the basis of YOUR LAB NOTES. So make you notes complete, clear and readable by others.
You can enter the lab at your convenience. However TAs will only be there at designated times to help and sign off your work.
You are responsible for cleaning up your working space.
Only the three best midterms will be accounted in the total.
Midterms take place at the usual lecture time and place. See the lectures page for midterm dates. There will be no makeups.
PHYS6610 students may get extra/different problems.
Midterms are closed book tests.
The final exam is comprehensive. It is a closed book test.
Homework is meant to give you a flavor of the problems you will get in tests. One homework will be due every chapter or two depending on topics and timing.
Grade are kept available for you to review anonymously on the web-page (see students page)
