To help you prepare for the final, there will be a study session with your TA (Patrick Wagstrom) on December 7, from 2-4pm in SB108.

Homeworks and Exams

Make sure you always show your work. This way you may get partial credit in case the final result is wrong. In any event, please try to prove your statement(s).

Failure to prove things earns you only 50% of the maximum for that particular problem in case the answer is correct, and nothing in case the answer is wrong. In case you can't prove something show at least your attempts or try to give an explanation of why you gave that particular answer.

It is important that you start working on your project as soon as possible, this will give time to fully understand the requirements and then go through a couple of iterations in your design before the work you submit is of acceptable quality.

You are encouraged to seek feedback from your instructor on the work you're doing way before the project is due. This will give you a chance to bridge the gap between your understanding of the project and you instructor's expectations.

You are required to print out the lab documentation and the lab manual available on line (see below). The laboratory uses several simulators available both on the UNIX workstations (the deltas cluster) and on the Department's PCs (specifically those in SB-108, SB-112J and SB-112K).
