Midterm Regrading Policy: If you would like to have a portion of the Midterm Exam regraded, you will need to submit your graded exam and a brief written description (on a separate piece of paper) of precisely what you think is wrong. Do not write anything on the original exam. You can submit this material to either of the TAs. Homeworks/Labs: About four or five homeworks/labs are planned for this course. They will be generally due on Thursdays (according to a schedule posted to the ECE15 course calendar). Late submissions will not be accepted. Homework Quizzes: There will be an in-class quiz following the submission of every homework. The quiz questions will be closely related to the homework material. You will need an i-clicker device, available from the UCSD bookstore, in order to take part in the quizzes.
