## A bonus point opportunity

Students in ECE201-004 Spring 2015 have the opportunity to earn bonus points by creating exercises (i.e. practice problems) or slectures related to linear circuit analysis. These bonus points will not have a significant impact on your letter grade, but will help tilt the balance towards a higher grade if you are close to the threshold. Also, they could be the difference between an A and an A+. Keep in mind that quality is more important than quantity. The material must be original, created by you. Plagiarizing or simply copying lecture notes found on the internet will be considered cheating and will result in a significant lowering of your grade. Read Rhea's copyright policy before proceeding.

If you wish to post your material anonymously, please contact Prof. Mimi to get an anonymous login. Otherwise, you will be identifiable through your Purdue CAREER account, and thus you will NOT be anonymous.

For Material in Text Form You must write your material using the markup language wikitext. Mathematical formulas are written in latex (see link below for examples). Circuits can be hand-drawn, scanned, and uploaded as images. See more guidelines under the corresponding templates below.
