**12/07/05**:

### Final Exam Note Sheets and Tables.

At the final exam, you will receive a copy of the following pdf file of tables, and also a photocopy of Table 10.3 in the OWN textbook. You are also allowed to bring three (3) double-sided, handwritten (not photocopied) sheets of notes (8 1/2 x 11 paper).**12/07/05**: The final is scheduled for Saturday, December 17, at 5 - 8 PM, in the Bechtel auditorium.

**12/06/05**: There will be two review sessions for the final: Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 8 - 10 PM, and Thursday, Dec. 15, at 10 AM - 12 noon. We will cover the same sample problems at both sessions. Locations will be posted soon.

**11/26/05**: An errata for the OWN textbook is located here. (This contains the typo in Table 9.1, among other things.)

**11/24/05**: In some versions of the textbook, the Initial and Final Value Theorems in Table 9.1 contain typos. (You might see an obvious error in the subscript of the limit.) Please check Table 9.1 against Equations 9.110 and 9.111 on page 690.

**10/12/05**: Prof. Gastpar will be using the following Grading Guidelines to assign letter grades at the end of the semester.

Course Information

One of the key abilities of an engineer is system-level thinking.
Taking EECS 120 will help you develop this skill.
In particular, you will see how the math and physics you have learned
in other courses help you understand rather complex systems that
occur in engineering and computer science (with applications to communication systems,
biomedical imaging, control, and robotics), but also in other
disciplines such as neuroscience.
The knowledge and skills that you will acquire in EECS 120 are
at the heart of an entire series of senior-level and graduate classes,
including
121, 123, 125, 128, 192, 221A, 224, and 226A.
EECS 126 (Probability and Random Processes) is not required for this
course and gives a complementary set of tools needed for advanced
material, especially in the areas of communications and signal processing.
We assume that you have familiarity with lower division physics and
circuits since these are the source of many examples.

Prerequisites: EE 20, Math 53 and 54.
