L= Lecture #
T= Topic #
W=week of the year, starting from Jan 1
D=day: T is Tue, W Wed, R Thur, S Sat, etc.
The somewhat random-ordered numbers in front of many (not all) topics, are the topic numbers defined in the 2009 Syllabus Δ:
ECE-493 is divided into 4 basic sections (I-IV), divided into 40 topics, delivered as 24=4*6 lectures. There are two mid-term exams and one final. There are 12 homework assignments, with a HW0 that does not count toward your final grade. Each exam (I, II and Final) will count as 30% of your final grade, while the Assignments (HW1-12) plus class participation (Prof's Discuression), count for 10%.
