EXAM#2(20%): Focus of the Exam#2-- (a)The ability to use node voltage method and mesh current method in a complex circuit (25%). (b) Ability to derive Thevenin equivalent circuit and it's application to max power transfer (25%), (c) Combined and synthetic application of node, mesh, Thevenin, source transformation in to a circuit problem (25%), and (d) Ability to understand the core concept of the ideal Op amp and the ability to solve OP amp circuits using the abilities in (a), (b), and (c)
PROJECT(15%) (By the way, a Washington Post comic strip argues that the project is too easy.)
- Project How do I grade and what I regard highly? (a) Ability to interpret the given situation in terms of circuit problem, (b) Ability to identify the topics and materials studied in the class that can be synthetically applied to the situation, (c) Ability to manage, conduct, and modify one's work to solve the problem, (d) Ability of critical thinking in that one finds the spot which holds the answer to the problem, (e) The ability of doing research, (f) The ability to teach oneself to learn new things (and not taught in the class) based on the knowledge gained in the process, (g) The ability of written communication which is technical, profession, and most of all, convincing, and (h) The ability of oral communicatio and the use of digital media and software for effective presentation. Additionally, (i) creativity, and (j) evidence collection and forensic engineering would get extra points.
