TEXTBOOK: G. Rizzoni, Principles and Applications of Electrical Engineering, Third Edition, McGram-Hill, 2000

COURSE WEBSITE: http://www.engr.uky.edu/~ymzhang/EE307.html

NOTES: will be posted in the course's website prior to the class

GRADING:
Test One…………20 pts.
Test Two………20 pts.
Test Three……..20 pts.
Homework………15 pts.
Final Exam………25 pts.
Total…..……… 100 pts.

A: 90 or higher
B: 80 - 89.9
C: 70 - 79.9
D: 60 - 69.9
E: below 60

INDEPENDENT HOMEWORK:

Four voluntary independent open-book homework sessions will be held before tests and the final examination. The completed assignments will be graded for up to 10 pts extra credit toward the final grade. Existing problems will be addressed in the review sessions prior to the tests and the final examination.

HOMEWORK:

Homework assignments will be posted in the website on Monday, Tuesday, and/or Wednesday. Homework sets assigned during the week are due on Friday before 5:00 p.m. unless otherwise specified. NO LATE HOMEWORK WILL BE ACCEPTED!

TEST ATTENDANCE:

Failure to take a test or the final exam during the assigned class period will result in a grade of zero being recorded for that test unless the student has personally contacted me PRIOR to the test and has received permission to take the test at an alternative time. I will give you ample notice (one week) about test dates.

CLASS ATTENDANCE:

Students will be responsible for ALL business conducted during scheduled class periods, including any announcements which might be made.

KEYS TO GOOD GRADES

Attend the class
Understand the textbook and examples
Practice examples until all correct before doing the homework
Do the homework with the book and notes closed
Turn the homework in time
Review the textbook and notes again before the independent homework sessions
Participate in the independent homework and the follow-up review sessions
Solve the independent homework problems again before tests & examination

TENTATIVE PLAN

This plan is tentative and approximate. Each of the three tests will be taken approximately one week after all the contents covered by the test are taught. The exact date will be announced at the class and the course's website.
