**Homework:** Assigned here below and collected electronically using Compass2g by 11:59 PM on the specified due dates for each assignment (nominally on Tuesdays, but may vary from time to time). For electronic submissions you will be expected to scan your HW pages using a suitable scanner on your smart phones --- see suggestions for Android platform scanners or using the Notes app as a scanner on an iPhone --- or else generate pdf's directly if you solve your HW on a tablet.

Late homework will get zero credit (except when special permission is granted by your instructor before the due date). HW will be graded with 10 pts per HW problem. HW will also contain slightly more challenging "bonus problems" which are not required but earn you 5 points per part to "fill in'' possible "missing points'' in your total HW score at the end of the semester.

Some of the homework assignments will include problems to be solved using "partially completed" Mathematica notebooks to be provided to you. This feature of the course complements ECE 329 Mathematica sections which were first introduced in Fall 2015. No prior experience with Mathematica will be required to complete these Mathematica based ECE 350 assignments since partially completed notebooks to be provided will include syntax patterns that will be easy to learn and modify in order to complete the assignments. The objective of these exercises will be to gain a better insight about EM phenomena by taking advantage of graphics and display capabilities of Mathematica. As a by product you will gain a useful knowledge of Mathematica and what it can do for you in solving your engineering problems. Watching the following videos prior to starting your first Mathematica assignment will be very useful: Notebooks Methods to Get Started Basic Calculations Basic Graphics Making Interactive Models

All engineering students have free access to Mathematica via Citrix remote server. Please download and install the Citrix Receiver software for your personal computer from Citrix Download or Citrix Download for Linux to have free access to Mathematica outside the EWS labs.

**Exams:** Three midsemester exams and the final exam are scheduled as follows:

If you have any special circumstances or feel you have a conflict with any exam(s), see your instructor to make arrangements.
