It is in the student's best interest to do all the homework assignments and problems in the textbook. This increases the student's skills and enhances his/her abilities to solve problems. This is an essential part of this course, since in your future job this is what you will be doing. We will be collecting your homework the Monday after the week it is assigned at 5:00PM in the EEC180A homework box in 2131 Kemper Hall. Solutions will be posted to the website by Monday evening, so that you can check your work.
