TA: Mr. Eric Dedrick 

Email: dedrick@vbnm.net 
Office: 675 FPAT

Class Meetings: Room 257 FPAT, MWF 9:00AM to 9:50AM.
Expected Student Outcomes: A student who has successfully completed this course should be able to:
Use transfer function and statespace representations to describe linear systems .
Classify systems based on their properties and descriptions, which include causality, linearity, timeinvariance, continuoustime, controllability, observability, and stability.
Solve for system outputs given inputs, initial conditions/states, and statespace or transfer function descriptions.
Analyze and design state observer systems.
Analyze and design state feedback systems
Create computer programs (such as MATLAB, Octave, or Simulink) to analyze and design systems
Grading Policy: Your grade will be based on:
13 Homework Assignments for 13%
5 highest quiz scores for 20%
1 Midterm for 30%
1 final exam for 37%
Letter Grade Assignment: from 100 to 90 pts. => A, from 89 to 80 pts. => B, from 79 to 70 pts => C, from 69 to 0 pts. => E
Email List: All students are expected to subscribe to the class email list at:
http://lists.engr.uky.edu/mailman/listinfo/ee611
and will be responsible for material sent to the class via email.
Homework Policy: Homework problems will be assigned and graded by the TA.
Quiz Policy: A typically quiz will have a 1015 minute time limit. Inclass quizzes will be closednote and closedbook. Quizzes that require computer software will be takehome assignments and due the following class period. At least 5 quizzes will be given in the semester. If more than 5 quizzes are given, only the top 5 quiz scores will be used in computing the final grade. Failure to take a quiz at the time it is given will result in a score of zero. Makeup quizzes will not be given. If you have questions regarding the grading of a particular quiz, it must be submitted in writing to the instructor by the next class period after it was returned.
Midterm Exam: A midterm exam will be given during a regular class period.
Final Exam: A final exam will be given during finals week. Student having conflicts on the exam day will need to notify the instructor immediately to determine what arrangements can be made.
Unethical behavior: The following activities are unethical:
Using data you did not measure
Recording values you did not observe
Copying a portion of work belonging to someone else
Any of these will result in the consequences described in the university’s policy on academic dishonesty. (see http://www.chem.uky.edu/research/grossman/acadoffenses/index.htm ).
Workload: The key to doing well is maintaining a consistent level of effort throughout the semester. Plan on attending class meetings and devoting at least 6 to 10 hours weekly for homework and study outside of class.
