(Links to course description, old exams if available, current homework
assignments and solutions). The actual site where most course resources
will be placed is http://www.ctools.umich.edu.
Homework: Handed out (or assigned on the basis of posted homepage information)
every Wednesday in lecture. Due the following Wednesday at the
conclusion of lecture.
Late Policy: Homework will not be accepted late without a medical waiver.
Collaboration
Policy:
All homework assignments are to be completed on your own. You are
allowed to consult with other students in the current class regarding the
general approach to solving problems, but all work submitted by you must
be your work alone. It is not permissible to work out the details of
problems with anyone, since it is essential that you learn to do this on your
own. Hence you may not compare your written solutions in draft or
final form with those of other students.
Solutions:
Available from the Coursetools website for EECS 334 (or via the
solutions link at www.eecs.umich.edu/courses/eecs334/index.html).
Exams:
A short mid-term and a final, with official scheduling and location to be
announced in class. (See schedule below).
