4/11/04 Department Feedback Survey

A student group comes to speak at our annual faculty retreat about what's working and what's not with respect to courses and other issues. Last year, students told us that EE 42 should be made more relevant to CS majors, and I have tried to do this.

You can participate in a survey to have your voice heard at the upcoming retreat. One issue up for discussion among faculty is whether EE 40 and EE 42 should be merged. There are spaces for general comments on EE courses (incl. 42 and 43) and a discussion board. Tailor comments to courses and not specific profs; leave comments on profs for their end-of-semester evaluations.

4/10/04 Solutions to Exam 2 related material (Lecture 18, Hard Review Problems) have been posted on the lectures page. A practice exam has also been posted on the exam info page.

If you received an F, I want to talk to you. I know it's scary to talk to a prof if you're not doing well in the class, because you think you're being judged. But I really would like to help you get back on track, so please ask for help! Email Prof. Ross
