NOTE: This is the accelerated course, to be taken concurrent with EEGR2112A.
	This course will meet during the time periods scheduled for BOTH
	courses - MWF 11:00-11:50  AND  TR 11:00-12:20.  Accelerated Network 
	Theory students must register for EEGR2111A and EEGR2112A, as well 
	as EEGR 2111T, which is a testing section.  Tentatively, all exams 
	will be given during the regular class periods.

Textbooks: Introduction to Electric Circuits, Third ed., 
	         R.C. Dorf and J. A. Svoboda, Wiley 1996.

Collaboration (not copying) on homework and  projects is encouraged.   Class
attendance and participation are expected.  You are expected to be prepared 
for class; disruptive behavior will not be tolerated.  You must read the 
textbook; it is impossible to cover all material in depth during class.

Grading will be based on exam 1 (40%), exam 2 (40%), homework (10%), and class 
participation (10%).  If you miss an exam for any reason you will receive 
a grade of zero (exceptional circumstances must be documented and approved 
by the instructor at least 24 hours prior to the exam).  All exams will be 
open book, NO calculators.

The course will roughly follow the outline below; some key topics are noted.

It is the responsibility of the student to be familiar with the academic
regulations, degree requirements, and course requirements as outlined in
the current University Catalog (1995-1997).  The official university 
guidelines supersede any contradictions that may exist in this handout.


published in the UNCC Catalog.

Corequisite: EEGR2101 or CSCI2113.
Prerequisite or corequisite: PHYS2231 and MATH2171.


Students have the responsibility to know and observe the requirements of The UNCC
Code of Student Academic Integrity (1995-97 Catalog page 310).  This code forbids
cheating, fabrication or falsification of information, multiple submission of 
academic work, plagiarism, abuse of academic materials, and complicity in academic 
dishonesty.  Any special requirements or permission regarding academic integrity 
in this course will be stated by the instructor, and are binding on the students.  
Academic evaluations in this course include a judgment that the student's work 
is free from academic dishonesty of any type; and grades in this course therefore 
should be and will be adversely affected by academic dishonesty.  Students who 
violate the code can be expelled from UNCC.  The normal penalty for a first 
offense is zero credit on the work involving dishonesty and further substantial 
reduction of the course work.  In almost all cases the course grade is reduced 
to F.  Copies of the code can be obtained from the Dean of Students Office.  
Standards of academic integrity will be enforced in this course.  Students 
are expected to report cases of academic dishonesty to the course instructor.
