ECE 498MR: Introduction to Stochastic Systems
Your final grade in ECE 498MR will be determined according to the following point weighting formula:
- 30% Written problem sets
- 20% Programming assignments in Python
- 25% Midterm Exam
- 25% Final Exam
Written problem sets
Format and submission instructions. There will be three programming/simulation assignments in the form of Jupyter notebooks (formerly known as iPython notebooks). Be sure to install the Jupyter Notebook app following these instructions. There are two versions of Python, 2.7 and 3.4. In this class, we will be using Python 2.7, so be sure to install the correct version of Anaconda.
- Programming Assignment 1: mp1.ipynb (due by the end of Mar 13)
- Programming Assignment 2: mp2.ipynb (due by the end of Apr 26)
- Programming Assignment 3: mp3.ipynb (part of the take-home final; due by the end of May 14)
The files will be submitted through Compass 2g. Upload instructions:
Multiple attempts will be allowed, but only your last submission before the deadline will be graded.
We reserve the right to take off points for not following directions.
- Log into https://compass2g.illinois.edu and go to Spring 2017 ECE 498 - Intro to Stochastic Systems - Sections MR3, MR4.
- Select Course Content from the left column.
- Select Programming Assignment X (where X is the number of the current assignment) from the list, and follow the instructions.
- Upload your iPython notebook as an attachment.
- Hit Submit.
Late policy: No late submissions will be accepted.
If you have a compelling reason for not being able to submit the assignment on time
and would like to make a special arrangement, you must send me email at least a week before the due date
(any genuine emergency situations will be handled on an individual basis).
Academic integrity: Feel free to discuss the assignment with each other in general terms,
and to search the Web for general guidance (not for complete solutions). All solutions should be written up
individually. If you make substantial use of some information from outside sources,
be sure to acknowledge the sources in your solution. At the first instance of cheating (copying from other students or unacknowledged sources on the Web), a grade of zero will be given for the assignment. At the second instance, you will automatically receive an F for the entire course.
