Use these lists to help manage your time as you work your way through EE 201. If you are self-motivated and good at staying on task, you can probably use the "topics" list to manage your work. You may be able finish most of EE 201 well before the end of the semester. If you prefer a more guided approach, use the "day-by-day" list to structure your time. It is not necessary to adhere rigidly to the schedule, but if you track it within ±3 days, you will be succesful in EE 201. The "due date" list is not meant for structuring a schedule. If you wait until just before the due dates to complete your work, you are doomed.

Links to the listed lecture topics, quiz/practice problems, homework, and lab/Spice descriptions are given on those specific pages.

Ordered list of topics

A day-by-day schedule

A suggested work schedule for a typical 16-week semester. Very similar to what I used when teaching EE 230.
