ELEC 101: Electrical Engineering Analysis
Bucknell University, Spring 2005
Overview:
The objective is to provide an introduction to fundamental
analysis and design techniques in electrical engineering.
The two main topics are analog circuits containing
resistors, operational amplifiers, capacitors, and inductors,
and digital systems containing binary logic devices
and memory devices.

(Refer to the
course home page for the most uptodate office hours)
Tuesday 2 PM  3 PM
Thursday 11 AM 12 PM
Other times can be arranged  talk to me in class, send email,
or call.
Corequisite:
MATH 202.
Required Textbook:
L.S. Bobrow,
Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering
(Second Edition), Oxford University Press, 1996.
Other Books:
The library has many other books that cover the material in this
course.
The titles are usually similar to "Introduction to Electrical
Engineering" or "Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering"
or "Basic Electrical Engineering".
I encourage you to read a variety of books in order to see different
explanations and additional examples.
Course Home Page:
The home page for the ELEC 101 course is located at the URL
http://www.eg.bucknell.edu/~kozick/elec10105
It can also be accessed by following the link from
Prof. Kozick's home page at
http://www.eg.bucknell.edu/~kozick
The course home page contains the homework assignments,
lab assignments,
syllabus,
and other course information.
Grading:
Inclass and takehome exams 30%
Short quizzes (announced and unannounced) 10%
Final exam 25%
Homework 15%
Laboratories 20%
Exams and Quizzes:
Two inclass exams
and one takehome exam will be given on the following dates:
Friday, February 11 (inclass, 12.5%)
March 2123 (takehome, 5%)
Wednesday, March 30 (inclass, 12.5%)
The course will conclude with a comprehensive final exam.
Short quizzes (announced or unannounced)
will also be given to check your understanding of
the material as we proceed through the course.
Missed quizzes cannot be madeup, but your lowest quiz grade will be
dropped.
Homework:
Homework will be assigned regularly to give you practice
with the course material.
It will be due at the beginning of class on the specified due date.
Late assignments will not be accepted because solutions will
be distributed and reviewed during class on the due date.
You are allowed and
encouraged to work on the homework with groups of your classmates.
The purpose of the homework is to practice with the material and to
improve your understanding.
We encourage you to learn from each other, and also to ask us when you
have
questions.
However, the homework solutions that you submit for grading
must be written individually.
Be sure that you understand the reasoning for each problem,
even if you initially solved the problem with help from your
classmates.
Laboratories:
Laboratory attendance is mandatory.
If you have a legitimate reason for missing lab, please see
Prof. Kozick as soon as possible for alternative arrangements.
Your lab grade will be based on attendance, active participation in the
lab activities, and the completeness of your lab notebook.
The laboratories will count for 20% of your overall grade in ELEC 101.
Guidelines for the lab sessions are as follows.
