Mark Nelms, Basic Engineering Circuit Analysis, 8th Edition, John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2005, ISBN 0-471-48728-7 General Class Information: 1. There are 21 class meetings scheduled for the 11 weeks of the Summer 2011 Semester. Eighteen of these meetings are devoted to class lectures and three devoted to examinations – two mid-terms and one final. 2. Mid-term examinations will be given on the 4th and 9th weeks, and will be two hour written exercises. 3. The final examination will be given on the 17th week and will be a comprehensive written examination. NOTICE: The UTA registrar has demanded a firm, unforgivable final date (one calendar day after the last final examination date) for the submission of course grades from all instructors. Because of this rigid schedule, the date and time scheduled for the final examination (Tuesday August 16, 2011, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm) is fixed and will not be changed for any reason. Therefore, all students, without exception, must take the final examination at this time. 4. All examinations will be pencil, paper, and calculator exercises. All students will take these exams at the scheduled times in the classroom. Note that devices such as cell phones, computers, PDAs, and others that have wired or wireless communication capability are not allowed in the class room during exams. 5. There will be absolutely no late or make-up mid-term or final examination given unless a written request has been submitted to and approved by the instructor at least two weeks prior to the examination date. As a rule, make-up examinations are several orders of magnitude more difficult than examinations given on the scheduled dates. Please be advised that illness or any other absence on the examination date does not constitute a valid reason for a make-up examination. 6. There will be five to six homework assignments, usually given on one or two-week intervals. Each assignment requires about five to ten hours for completion. These assignments will be graded and will be included as part of your total course grade. Past experience has shown that students who spend the necessary time to work these assignments usually do quite well on the examinations. Solutions to homework problems will be e-mailed to all students by the end of the day the assignment is due. Homework turned in after the solutions have been sent out will not be counted and will receive a grade of zero. 7. The total grade for this course is based upon the homework (HW), two mid-term exams (MTE1 and MTE2), and the final exam (FE) grades. The total grade is computed from Total grade = 0.1*HW + 0.25*(MTE1 + MTE2) + 0.4*FE The letter grade is based on the range of the total grade shown below. Percentage for Grades Total grade range Letter grade 88% – 100% A 75% – 87% B 63% – 74% C 50% – 62% D 0% – 49% F 8.
