- Matlab use is required for this course. The following
toolboxes are also required: Symbolic Math, Signal Processing, DSP, Control
Systems. You can download a license key and instructions for installing
Matlab from the OU IT Store at
Alternatively, you can purchase the Matlab and Simulink
Student Suite for $99:
Matlab is also available on the College of Engineering
Virtual Lab (see handout on the course web site).

- REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION POLICY:
The University of Oklahoma is committed to providing reasonable
for all students with disabilities. Students with disabilities who require
accommodations in this course are requested to speak with the instructor as
early in the semester as possible. Students with disabilities must be
registered with the Disability Resource Center prior to receiving
accommodations in this course. The Disability Resource Center is located
in Goddard Health Center, Suite 166, (405) 325-3852 (Tel)
or (405) 325-4173 (TDD only). The Disability Resource Center web site is
- RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS:
It is the policy of the University to excuse absences of students that result
from religious observances and to provide without penalty for the
rescheduling of examinations and additional required classwork that may fall
on religious holidays. It is the responsibility of the student to
make alternate arrangements with the instructor at least one week prior
to the actual date of the religious holiday.
- UNIVERSITY POLICY ON ACADEMIC HONESTY:
This page outlines the University's expectations of academic honesty, defines
misconduct, provides examples of prohibited conduct, and explains the sanctions
available for those found guilty of misconduct. Additional information about
the meaning of academic misconduct in this course is provided later
in this syllabus.
The UOSA Statement of Academic Integrity will be used in this course.
- COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course will provide an introduction to the fundamental techniques of
digital signal processing, including discrete-time linear systems,
finite impulse response digital filters, infinite impulse
response digital filters, fast Fourier transforms, response of LTI systems
to statistical signals, digital filter design, and applications.
Homework will be assigned during class.
You are encouraged to
work together on homework, but DO NOT COPY! Each problem solution
that you turn in must be your own;
Homework assignments and solutions will be posted on the course web page.
- if you copy another person's solution and turn it in as your own,
then you are guilty of academic misconduct.
- If you copy an old homework solution without working the problem
yourself and turn it in, then you
are guilty of academic misconduct.
Some homework assignments will require the use of Matlab.
The standards of academic honesty articulated above apply to Matlab assignments
as well. In addition:
- If you obtain code from another person in an electronic format and
incorporate it into the solution that you turn in, then
you are guilty of academic misconduct.
- If you obtain code from another person in electronic or hardcopy
formats and then type it into the solution that you turn in, then
you are guilty of
Working the homework problems on time will help YOU to do well on the tests
- LATE HOMEWORK POLICY:
``Paper and pencil" homework assignments will be due at the start of class on the
published due date. Matlab homework assignments will be submitted electronically
on Canvas and will generally be due at midnight on the published due date. Late
homework will not be accepted.
There are two reasons for this policy. First,
accepting a late homework assignment from one student is unfair to other
students who may have stayed up all night to get the assignment done
and may also
have sacrificed grades in other classes to get it done.
Second, it would be detrimental to the overall learning outcomes of the class
to delay the posting of homework solutions in order to accommodate late assignments.
If you cannot attend class on the day that a ``paper and pencil" homework assignment
is due, then you can either:
- ask a friend to turn in your paper for you (preferred), or
- email a PDF or JPG copy of your assignment to the TA(s) and 'cc the
instructor. Please note that this emailed copy of your assignment
will not be graded! It is simply to document the fact
that your assignment was
done on time. It is then your responsibility to deliver a paper copy of your
assignment to the TA(s) within 24 hours.
- TESTS & EXAM:
There will be two tests and a cumulative final exam.
Each test will be announced in class at least one
week in advance.
You may use calculators
on tests and on the exam, but you may NOT use calculator programs.
Also, you are NOT allowed to store alphanumeric data in your calculator
prior to a test or exam, and then retrieve that data during the test
The tests and the exam are OPEN BOOK. You may also bring a clean
copy of the lecture notes as published on the course web site and
a clean copy of the formula sheet that is published on the course web site.
Other materials are NOT ALLOWED.
On each test and on
the final exam, students enrolled for undergraduate credit (ECE 4213)
will be permitted to omit one problem.
Makeup tests will not be given.
If you miss a test and your absence is NOT officially excused,
then you will receive a zero grade for that test.
If you miss a test and your absence IS officially excused,
then your final exam grade will be used in place of the missed test grade.
Your final average will be calculated as shown in the table below.
These numerical grades will be converted into letter grades using a curve determined
by the instructor. For each section (ECE 4213 and ECE 5213),
the same curve will be applied to all students in the class.
The curve will never hurt your grade relative to the
standard ten-point grading scale.
