==== Homework ==== ==== Homework ====
-Homework will be assigned weekly and is due in class on the day indicated on the [[ee483schedule|schedule]]. Late homework will not be accepted. The solutions to the homework will be placed on the class wiki after it is due. +Homework problem sets will be posted on the course website. Most of the solutions to the problems can be found within the text and on the publisher's website. All problems should first be attempted without aids to build understanding. It is expected and encouraged that students will work together in solving homework. However, all students must submit their own individual work. Homework is due in the fourth floor homework box by 9 AM on Friday mornings. It will be collected at a random time between 9 AM and 10 AM. Late homework will not be accepted. The lowest two homework scores of the semester will be dropped in computation of final grades. Some homework assignments will include MATLAB programming assignments that must be completed for full homework credit. 
 +  
 +Students should write their names on the TOP RIGHT CORNER of the FRONT SHEET. This will help our secretarial staff in alphabetizing and sorting your homework.
-==== Lab ====+==== Quizzes ====
-There will be nine labs associated with the whirlybird hardware.  You must complete all of the labs to pass the course. The labs must be passed off to the TA by the day indicated on the the [[ee483schedule|schedule]]. Late labs will be accepted but the grade will be reduced by 10 points (out of 100) each week that the lab is late. All labs must be completed by the last day of class (December 8).+On Fridays a 10-minute closed-book quiz will be given at the beginning of class on material covered in recent lectures, reading, and homework. No make-up quizzes will be offered. The lowest three scores from the semester will be dropped in the computation of final grades. If you have more than three university-excused absences on quiz days, your grade will be computed using the remaining quizzes.
