Term 2  2017
Prescribed Textbooks

Other Resources
These are not compulsory, but may assist you:

This is the same textbook used in ENEE12014 Electrical Circuit Analysis unit in term 1 2016. So if you have done Circuit Analysis this year you can reuse your textbook. If you have done Circuit Analysis in 2015 or prior you need to purchase this textbook.
It is not compulsory to buy Matlab software as it will be available in selected University computers and the Anydesk software platform. If you are purchasing the software you also need to purchase the "Signal Processing Toolbox". If you already have an older Matlab version you don't need to purchase again. To purchase Matlab use the link below.

Assessment Title  Laboratory Activities and Report 

Task Description This assessment item covers all topics. Laboratory sessions will be held at various times, as directed by the unit website, through the term or in the case of distance students at the residential school. All information regarding the laboratories will be provided to the students via the unit website. Laboratories are compulsory and all students must pass the laboratory exercise assessment in order to pass the unit. Details of the laboratory exercises will be posted on the unit website at the start of the term.

5 Online Quiz(zes)
Assessment Title  Online Quiz(zes) 

Task Description The assessment is a set of online fortnightly quizzes which can be accessed via the unit Moodle site. A set of multiple choice and calculation questions is assigned each week. The quizzes are an integrated part of the study to test on the key concepts of each topic. Details of the assessment will be available on the unit Moodle site at the beginning of the team. Each quiz has a set time to complete and once a student start a quiz, it will close after the set time. Once started, a quiz cannot be paused in the middle. Students are strongly advised to sufficiently cover the material related to each quiz before starting the quiz. Each quiz will be available up to 1 week after the relevant fortnight to allow students who cannot find time each week for study. For example quiz on week 1 and 2 material will close at the end of week 3 and quiz on week 3 and 4 material will close at the end of 5 etc. Each quiz can be attempted several times, but the score for the quiz will be the score for your first attempt. In your different attempts you will be receive different problems as the system randomly select the problems from a set of problems specified for each question. Correct answer for the quiz questions will be available immediately after you submit your answers. If you encounter any network access issues during the quiz, the unit coordinator should be notified at your earliest convenient.
