5 Prerequisites: Credit for or current enrollment in Textbook for EE302 Required text: Fundamentals of Electric Circuits, 3rd Edition, Alexander, Charles and Sadiku, Matthew. This is the same text that you will use for EE411. 6 Course Topics Analysis of DC Linear Circuits Physics Representation of Analog Circuit Quantities Definitions of various analog circuit elements such as resistors, voltage sources, and dependent sources. Kirchoff's Current and Voltage Laws Advanced circuit analysis techniques such as node voltage and mesh current analysis Development of equivalent circuits for analyzing circuits using source transformations, superposition, Thevenin and Norton's theorem.
7 At the end of EE 302, you will: Understand the relationships between current, voltage, energy, and power Be able to draw accurate schematics of DC circuits Be able to solve for specified quantities in DC linear circuits using the following techniques: Kirchoff's Current and Voltage Laws Voltage and current division Node voltage analysis Mesh current analysis Superposition Be able to build a circuit on a breadboard based on a circuit schematic and accurately measure currents and voltages from this circuit 8 Prior Knowledge Expectations
Students who are in EE 302 are expected to have completed or be enrolled in their first semester of calculus. As a result, students are expected to have all of the following on the first day of class: Proficiency in elementary algebra; linear, quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic functions; polynomials; systems of linear equations; and applications Familiarity with the following concepts: charge, current, voltage, work, energy, and power.
9 Impact of EE 302 on Other Courses For all students, the skills in problem solving learned in DC circuit analysis will be used throughout the entire ECE Degree program. Knowledge gained in the area of DC circuit analysis is used in required courses in the EE Degree Circuits (EE 411) Electronics (EE 438) For students interested in the areas of Electronics and VLSI Design will also use a number of the techniques taught in EE 302 in the courses focused in these areas. 10 Lab Component of EE 302 There are three components to the lab: weekly labs, team project, and a lab proficiency exam Weekly labs Designed to reinforce your knowledge of DC linear circuit topics that are an integral component of EE 302 The labs have been designed to encourage you to take advantage of the computer programs and tools Although this is not a programming course, you will develop both expertise and confidence in using computers to solve technical problems.
11 EE302 Labs Laboratories :ACA1.108 Unique # 16190: Tues 111PM Unique # 16195: Thurs 111PM Unique # 16200: Thurs 35PM Schedule on the website No lab this week (week of 8/29) No lab week of Thanksgiving (week of 11/20)
12 Team Project Goals Develop team and communication skills. Give our students practical, hands-on building experience early in their UT careers. Reinforcement of classroom theory. High-level introduction of software development. Reinforce a sense of community among our ECE students. 13 Our Expectations of the Teams Set overall team goals Develop a project plan Make progress reports Keep a lab notebook Design and implement the hardware and software Make an oral presentation 14 Team Project Manual Printed and bound copy available from HKN (the ECE National Honor Society) for approximately $10 Available for purchase outside of ENS327, and then in the HKN office (ENS104) Printing of the document not allowed using printers in ENS The .pdf file is available online if you wish to view or print the file at home
15 Laboratory Proficiency Exam Each student is expected to be able to do all of the following Build a circuit on a breadboard from a circuit schematic Measure quantities such as current and voltage from the built circuits Each student will have these skills tested during the last week of the course There are labs throughout the semester which teach these skills 16 Grade Determination
Homework/Classwork: 12% Labs: 15% Midterm Exams (3): 15% each Final Exam: 20% Project: 8% All students must have a total exam (incl. final) average of 65 or better to receive a C or better in the course regardless of the grades received in other areas. Students can replace one exam grade with their final grade. No makeup exams will be offered.
17 Course Grade
A B C D F 90+ 80+ 70+ 60+ <60 No limit on number of A's, B's, C's I may lower, but not raise these cutoffs Exam average must exceed 65 for C
18 Grading Policies 1. 2. Participation score will be determined by Attendance Pop-quizzes. Extra credit in one area will NOT be applied to another. 19 Mid-Term Exams Dates (Tentative): Each exam counts as 15% of course grade Lowest score automatically replaced by final exam if advantageous No makeup exams
20 Wednesday, 10/3 Wednesday, 10/31 Friday, 11/30 Final Exam Final Exam (Will be finalized 3 weeks before semester end)
Sat. 15 Dec. 9noon Location will be announced later Counts as 20% of course grade
21 Homework Purpose is to give you practice in solving problems. Homework must be your own, but general methods of working problems may be discussed with others. If you do discuss the general methods of solving a particular problem with another classmate, acknowledge that person by name at the beginning of your solution. Copying another student's homework is strictly forbidden.
Solutions to the homework sets will be available on the web.
22 Homework Guidelines Due at the beginning of class on Fridays. (except for HW#9 which is due on Wednesday) Papers turned in after class is over = no credit In case of illness, email me No more than one problem per page. Write on only one side of the page Number pages, staple, and fold assignments lengthwise. (Hint: I don't bring a stapler to class.) 23 Homework Guidelines--Cont'd. On the outside of your folded homework, write the following with the fold to the left:
Your name (last, first, MI) EE 302 -- unique number (16xxx) Homework number Instructor's last name (Telang) Name EE302 16xxx HW1 Telang 24 Homework Guidelines-Cont'd. Box all final answers and underline important intermediate results. Remember that units are part of any correct answer. Be NEAT! Suggestion: Draw diagrams whenever possible, even when not requested in the problem description. A diagram quickly summarizes the problem and will be invaluable when reviewing for exams. 25 Academic Dishonesty
The faculty in the ECE Department is committed to detecting and punishing all instances of academic dishonesty and will pursue cases of academic dishonesty in accordance with university policy. Academic dishonesty, in all its forms, is blight on our entire academic community. All parties in our community professors, staff, and students are responsible for creating an environment that educates outstanding engineers, and this goal entails
excellence in technical skills, self-giving citizenry, and ethical integrity. Industry wants engineers who are competent and fully trustworthy, and both qualities must be developed day by day throughout an entire lifetime.
Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, copying other students' homework, copying other students' exams, obtaining copies of exams before they are given and providing false or misleading information in an effort to receive a postponement or an extension on a test, quiz, or other assignment. http://www.utexas.edu/depts/dos/sjs/academicintegrity.html 26 Adding/Dropping Classes The last day to drop this course without permission from the Dean is the 4th class day. Adds and drops after those days must be for "good cause" "Good cause": extenuating nonacademic circumstance that did not exist before.
27 EE 302 Course Website http://www.courses.utexas.edu/ Contents: Information specific to this class (all unique numbers are combined) 28 Students with Disabilities The University of Texas at Austin provides upon request appropriate academic adjustment for qualified students with disabilities. For more information, contact the Office of Dean of Students Additional information on this subject can be obtained from the Services for Students with Disabilities web page. 29 Tips for Success Effort is a great equalizer Be disciplined Attend class. Arrive on time. Read before class. Do the homework. Ask questions Find someone to work with. Show your work on homework and exams
30 Thought for the day
Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty and persistence. Colin Powell Assignment: Take 2 learning style surveys posted on blackboard. Print hard copy of the result and bring to class on Tuesday.
