Homework: HW will be assigned on this web page below (and also in 350-on-Gradescope ) and the solutions will be posted below after the due date. Completed HW should be returned to 350-on-Gradescope electronically by 11 PM on the due dates. Please watch this "how to submit" video before submitting your first HW into Gradescope as a pdf file and make sure to always match your pdf pages to HW question numbers as shown in the video. For electronic submissions you will be expected to scan your HW pages using your smart phones --- use Google Drive app on Android phones or the Notes app on iPhones to generate multi page pdfs --- or else generate pdf's directly if you solve your HW on a tablet. Only upload single pdf files to Gradescope and do not use any other file format (e.g., png, jpeg, etc). Also use the same scanning procedure when you upload your exam solutions to Gradescope in ExamScheduler --- see below.

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 can download Mathematica from Webstore and install it on their laptops. Mathematica is also available on EWS machines that can be found at multiple locations in engineering buildings.
