Please read and respond as asked!

  • The available options to satisfy the prerequisite are:

  • Indicating that you have credit for Calculus I

  • Indicating that you are enrolled now in Calculus I

  • Adding Calculus I

  • Getting a waiver approved by Dr. Barr.

Note: if you are found to be in violation of the prerequisite, you are subject to being dropped at any time!

Do not underestimate the technical part of this course!

A failure rate in this course can be as high as about 40%.

(This is almost always due to students doing poorly in the technical part.)


Class policy on assignments

Class Policy on Assignments

In this class you are expected to work individually on all of the homework and assignments.

The ONLY exception is the crystal radio class project.

To do otherwise will be considered as a violation of the UH Academic Honesty Policy.
