As indicated under grading assignments collectively account for 50% of the grade in this course. Since each subunit of the course is graded separately, not all assignments will necessarily have exactly the the same weight, since not all subunits have the same number of assignments. Homework problems are generally short and focused on the mathematical and judgmental techniques needed to perform specific steps of a much larger design oriented problem. The topical coverage web pages provide the lecture notes and then state when an assignment is made. Links to the assignment are then provided. It is also possible to keep track of assignments by checking the "Where We Are" button on the main page, or my clicking on assignments posted below to see if an assignment or due date has been issued.
