Course Syllabus: [pdf]


Quizzes (2): 20% TBD: 09/19, 11/21
Midterm: 25% TBD: 10/12
Final: 30% 12/14 15:10
Homework: 25%

Homework will include Matlab programming problems. Students may work together in study groups but all assignments must be completed individually. Homework will be due in class on the designated date. No late homework will be accepted unless prior notification and arrangements are made.


The gradebook is available through UNLV Webcampus [link].


11/20/17 Quiz02: You will be provided with tables for popular random variable distributions. Note: the Tables will come from the Leon-Garcia book so will have slightly different notation.
09/06/17 Get involved with student organizations on campus. Find fun things to do, expand your network, and get more out of school. See the linked document for listing of UNLV student organizations in Engineering, contact information, and meeting times [pdf].
08/26/17 Welcome to Fall 2017. Note on book abbreviations: OW = Oppenheim and Wilsky; SSS = Schaum's Signals and Systems; SPR = Schaum's Probability, Random Variables, and Random Processes.

Be sure to brush up on your Laplace Transform (OW Ch 9) and Z-Transform (OW Ch 10).
