ECE 201 - Fall 2010 Course Policies Welcome to ECE 201, “Linear Circuit Analysis.” In this document, we outline the course policies and procedures, including information regarding grading, attendance, homework, quizzes, examinations, academic honesty, and help/resources available to you. There are three sections of this course this semester. Contact information for the instructors and Teaching Assistants is listed on the final page. Textbook: The textbook for the course is the 3 rd edition of DeCarlo and Lin, “Linear Circuits.” This is available in the campus bookstores. The 2 nd edition text is not suitable for use with the course, as many of the homework assignments use Chapter problems from the 3 rd edition text. Grading: Each student’s course grade will be based upon the total numerical score s/he earns, with the following point allocation for the exams, the Final Exam, homework and quizzes. Test #1 80 points Test #2 100 points Test #3 120 points Final Exam 200 points Homework 100 points Quizzes 100 points Total 700 points We will determine your course letter grade from your standing in comparison with the class distribution. In addition to the grading scheme outlined above, each student must demonstrate a minimum level of competency in each of nine Course Outcomes, as defined in our ABET accreditation standards. No student may earn a passing grade (A, B, C, or D) for the course until s/he has satisfied each of these nine criteria. These course outcomes are as follows: Course Outcomes: A student who successfully fulfills the course requirements will have demonstrated: i. an ability to define and explain the meaning/function of charge, current, voltage, power, energy, R, L, C, the op amp, and the fundamental principles of Ohm's law, KVL and KCL. ii. an ability to write the equilibrium equations for a given network and solve using appropriate software as needed for the steady state (dc and ac/phasor) solution. iii. an ability to state and apply the principles of superposition, linearity, source transformations, and Thevenin/Norton equivalent circuits to simplify the analysis of circuits and/or the computation of responses. iv. an ability to qualitatively predict and compute the step responses of first order (RL and RC) and second order (RLC) circuits.
