ECE302: Probabilistic Methods in Electrical and Computer Engineering
Spring Semester 2020
Homework 5 solutions have been posted. (3/29)
Homework 4 solutions have been posted. (3/28)
- Homework 8 has been posted. I will work on solutions for previous homeworks this weekend, and hope to be up to date on those by Monday. (3/25)
- I've posted new lecture notes under the handouts link. There are four new files, covering two random variables introduction; joint cdfs, pdfs, pmfs; jointly Gaussian random variables, and independent random variables. I have a new video lecture prepared, but am having
some trouble with technology. Assuming I get this fixed, I will post more video lectures tomorrow. I will also post a new homework assignment tomorrow. (3/24)
- Well, there was an error when I tried to upload the first video lecture to Blackboard. I will keep trying and
post an announcement when I get it working. Thank you for your patience. (3/23)
- New lecture notes have been posted. (3/7)
- Homework 6 has been posted. (3/4)
- Homework 5 has been posted. Also, notes through today's lecture have been posted, so all notes related
to Homework 5 are now online. (2/26)
- New lecture notes have been posted. (2/23)
- Homework 4 has been posted. It will be due Feb. 26. (2/19)
- Lecture notes through today's class have been posted. (2/17)
- Homework 3 solutions have been posted. (2/16)
- Several useful documents have been posted, as promised in lecture. (2/12)
- If you scan your homework and email it, please make sure you include "ECE 302" in the subject.
Also, please cc Camille Hamelman at firstname.lastname@example.org, beginning with HW4. If possible, please send only one PDF file for a
homework assignment. (2/12)
- The TA's office hour and help session information has been added below. During the help sessions, the
TA will go over homework problems that students are having trouble with, and past exam problems if time allows.
Note that next week there will not be a help session, since the exam is at 6:30 Tuesday, but help sessions
will resume the week after next. (2/12)
- A new version of Homework 3 has been posted. Note that the only change from the version originally posted
is that a clarification has been added in the Problem 2 statement. Thank you to the student who asked about this problem,
because the new version includes an important definition of what it means for outcomes to be equally likely when the sample
space is an interval in the real numbers. You should know this definition for the exam. (2/10)
- Lecture notes from last week have been posted. (2/10)
- Solutions for HW1 have been posted. (2/4)
- For HW2, Prob. 4, you should assume there is no replacement after a ball is drawn from the urn. (2/4)
- Homework 3 has been posted. However, it is taking me longer to prepare the
new homework solutions than I thought it would, so it will be another day before I post the
HW1 solutions. Unlike solutions in previous years, these will be typeset, and will have more
details, but it will take a while for me to create them, so please be patient. (2/4)
- Lecture notes for the past week have been posted. (2/1)
- Homework 2 has been posted. (1/30)
- Lecture notes for this week have been posted. The TA's office hours and help
session information are given in the notes from yesterday's class. (1/25)

in the posted syllabus. (1/18)
- Lecture notes for this week have been posted. Also, the set theory notes referred to in class have been posted. (1/18)
- Welcome to ECE302! This is where I will post announcements for the class. Note that not all announcements made in lecture will appear here. (1/13)
