Homework

Homework is due 7 days after being assigned.  Sometimes the schedule is adjusted slightly to account for exams, holidays, etc. Students get one homework "free".  This means that I drop the worst homework score when I compute the final grade.  Thus, if you miss an assignment for any reason (sick, car broke down, etc.) , simply cash in the free assignment.

Students interested in a "no-homework option" should let the instructor know.  With this option, the midterm will account for 25%.

Labs

We will design and build a AM radio and a RF power amplifier in this course.  I will post details later.
