Laboratory Project:
Report Guidelines and Schedule

All students will present and/or demonstrate their lab projects on Tuesday, December 9, 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM. You should arrive at 8 AM and stay for the entire session (unless you have discussed your reason for leaving early with me). The main purpose of the lab project is for you to learn something new about a topic of your choice in the general area of signals and systems.

Written report: Each group is asked to submit a written report that describes your project objectives, explains the approach that you used, and summarizes your results. The report is due by Wednesday, December 10, at 9 AM.

Oral presentation: Please limit your presentation to 10 minutes, with demonstrations included within that time. You should aim for an 8 minute presentation, leaving a few minutes for questions. A suggestion for organizing your presentation is to do the following:

  1. Clearly explain the problem that you addressed in your project.
  2. Summarize the approach that you used.
  3. Show results, demonstration, problems encountered, etc.
With 16 different presentations, the audience will not be able to absorb a lot of technical details, so try to convey the basic ideas of what you did.

Presentation schedule: A tentative ordering of presentations is given below. Let me know if a different ordering would be better.
