Homework will be issued approximately once every one or two weeks. They will either consist of written assignments, Matlab assignments or C programming assignments. Homework will be graded, and will contribute 50% to the final grade. Homework handed in late will not be accepted unless consent is obtained from the teaching staff prior to the due date. There will be a project that will constitute 50% of your grade. The project can be individual or in a group. You are to submit a proposal to the instructor by the end of February. More details on the project will be provided later, and a list of suggested topics will be provided.
