This course is intended to cover the fundamentals
of discrete event systems. A deep understanding and
familiarity with the material is our goal. "Give me a fish,
and I will have food for a day. Teach me to fish, and I will have
food for a lifetime."
Lecture material and text
Do not fall behind on understanding and mastering the
material as it is being covered in the lectures.
Read the reference materials ahead of the lectures.
If you do not attend a lecture, you are responsible for getting a copy
of the handouts given during the lecture (e.g., homework, extra notes,
etc.), if any.
You are expected to keep up with the homework assignments. Successful
progress through the course relies on this. Homework will be collected
and graded. No credit for late homework.
No make-up exams will be given, except possibly under severe
extenuating circumstances. If unable to attend for any reason, contact
Prof. Chong at least 5 days before the exam.
Regrading can only be accommodated under two circumstances: (1)
incorrect adding up of scores; (2) incorrect assignment of scores. All
requests for regrading must be turned in within 5 days of the return of
the graded exam/homework. If requesting a regrade, please complete the
Regrade Request Form with additional
sheets (if necessary), staple it to the exam or homework in question,
and submit it to Professor Chong.
Note that your solution to the entire problem as well as the regrade
request form will be scrutinized and
the allocation of partial credit is at the discretion of the grader. In
some cases, regrade requests may result in a reduced score.
The golden rule applies.
Working together on general study is
encouraged. Of course, any assignment or exam you turn in
must be solely your own work.
Academic dishonesty has serious consequences (see below).
The ECE faculty expect every member of the Purdue community to practice
honorable and ethical behavior both inside and outside the classroom.
Any actions that might unfairly improve a student's score on homework,
quizzes, or examinations will be considered cheating and will not be tolerated.
Examples of cheating include (but are not limited to):
At the professor's discretion, cheating on an assignment or
examination will result in a reduced score, a zero score, or a failing
grade for the course. All occurrences of academic dishonesty will be
reported to the Assistant Dean of Students and copied to the ECE
Assistant Head for Education. If there is any question as to whether a
given action might be construed as cheating, please see the professor
or the TA before you engage in any such action.
- Sharing results or other information during an examination.
- Bringing forbidden material or devices to an examination.
- Working on an exam before or after the official time allowed.
- Requesting a regrade of answers or work that has been altered.
- Submitting homework that is not your own work or engaging in forbidden
- Representing as your own work anything that is the result of the
work of someone else.
