- Ability to compute and interpret the Fourier series representation of periodic signals
- Ability to compute and interpret the Fourier transform of continuous- and discrete-time signals
- Ability to sample and reconstruct continuous-time signals without aliasing
- Ability to interpret modulation and demodulation of signals in the time and frequency domains.

**Homework:**10% **Exam 1:**30% **Exam 2:**30% **Final Exam:**30%

A curve will be used to determine the final grades. The cutoff for each letter grade will not be higher than the typical cutoffs listed below for the total score for the course (100 possible). It is

very unlikelythat the cutoff between D- and F will be any lower than 50.

A>94 A->90 B+>87 B>84 B->80 C+>77 C>74 C->70 D+>67 D>64 D->60

**Lectures**

- The lectures this quarter will be available online in case you miss class or wish to review some of the material. The lectures will also be available for online viewing on the web site.
- If you wish to use a laptop during lecture, please sit at the back of the classroom to minimize the distraction to other students.

- If you are a student with a documented disability and registered with the Disability Resource Center, please contact me (the instructor) immediately to facilitate the arrangement of appropriate accommodations.

**Homework**

- You are encouraged to work together on the homework problems.
- Homework will be graded based on effort, not correctness. You are responsible for checking your answers against the solutions to make sure you understand the material.
- Homework solutions will be available on the class web site.
- Late homework will not be accepted, unless permission is given by the instructor.

**Exams**

- Exams questions will be similar to examples given in the lecture and exams given by the instructor in previous terms. The emphasis of exams will be on an understanding of the concepts, rather than an ability to perform the mechanics or solve mathematical equations.
- Please put cell phones and pagers on vibrate and turn off completely during exams. You may receive a call during lecture, but please step out of the room before you begin speaking to minimize the disturbance.
- All exams are closed book, but you are allowed at least one sheet of notes for each exam.
- You are not allowed to use a calculator on the exams.
- Make up exams will only be given
if arranged at least
.__48 hours in advance__ - You must notify the instructor
of any errors in grading the exam
of when the exam is returned to you.__within 1 week__
