- ESB106: Roll numbers ending in 3, 6, 9
- CRC101: All others

The introductory class for **all students** will be in CRC101 on Wednesday, 30th July 2014.

E slot(Tu 11-12; W 10-11; Th 8-9; Fr 2-3)

Registered students can login and see the course page at https://courses.iitm.ac.in/. Resources, tutorials, exam schedules, discussion forum etc. can be accessed from the moodle page.

Login to moodle at https://courses.iitm.ac.in/ to post questions and contact TAs and faculty.

There will be four quizzes. These will count for 50-60% of the grade and the end semester exam for the remaining 40%. Biweekly tutorials will count for up to 10% of the grade.

The recorded lectures are available here. You can also find lectures from previous years at the same link.

Problem sets will be posted below. You are expected to solve them on your own. You can approach the teaching assistants for clarifications and help. You should work each one before the corresponding dates given below. (The dates below are only tentative ones and can be changed at any time)

**Two port parameters**:- lectures 20(second half), 21, 24, 25, 26 of Prof. Dutta Roy's course on circuit theory at NPTEL. Problems in two port parameters are in lectures in 23, 25, 29

**Circuit analysis with Laplace Transforms**: Follow lectures 5-8 at this link to refresh your understanding of laplace transform analysis, sinusoidal steady state etc. Solve the practice problems in this problem set.

Attendance will be strictly enforced and those falling short will not be permitted to write the end sem exam. TAs will go around the room taking attendance at the beginning of the class. If you are more than 5 min. late, please do not enter the classroom.
