Lab marks have now been updated on SMS. Please contact your demonstrator as well as the LiC if any appear to be incorrectly recorded. Thanks.
As mentioned in the final lecture, the exams will be held in the Tabla, Bongo, Oud and Drum labs on the ground floor and basement of K17 next week on Tuesday 3 November commencing at 1:15 pm . Please be there on time so that we can start the exams on time. I expect you will be finished by about 5:15 pm on the day.
Exam seating will be allocated on the day, so please check the class and room lists posted near the above labs and in the ground floor foyer on the day from 1pm on.
Some students have told me they finished Labs 1-4 but were unable to have them marked off during the final marking session in Week 7. The demonstrators and I have organized ourselves to mark the outstanding Lab 1-4 efforts in the OUD lab (next door to Lyre) this Wednesday commencing at the usual lecture time of 2pm. Please ensure that you arrive at 2pm to have your labs marked off.
In order to manage the load, please ensure you have the following items ready for checking for each of the labs you want marked off. Raise your hand when you are ready to be marked off for any one of the labs. We will mark your lab and provide feedback on the mark we have given you. You may then prepare yourself to have the next lab marked off.
For Lab 1 : have Part 5 loaded and running on the board and the code for Part 5 ready for inspection.
For Lab 2 : have your simulation from Part 2.2 ready - ensure it covers all 16 possible inputs; have the code for Parts 4 and 5 ready for inspection
For Lab 3 : for Part 2, have the RTL viewer setup as in 2.2 and the simulation of 2.3 ready; have the simulation of 4.4, as depicted in Figure 6 ready for Part 4; demonstrate Part 5 on the board and have the code ready for inspection
For Lab 4 : have your code for Parts 1 & 2 ready for inspection; discuss the relative speed of the designs from Parts 1 & 2; provide your block diagram for Part 4, demo your design on the board and provide your code for inspection
Hello all. I'm guessing you're as relieved as I am that lectures are almost over for the year?! However, we have one more meeting in the coming week to briefly review the learning in the course and to go over exam logistics.
Monday's 4pm lecture will be held in CLB 1.
Lab marks have been updated in SMS. Please check that these are correctly recorded and report any discrepancies to the person who marked you. Next week is the final week for labs and lab marking.
A Practice Practical Exam that is intended to give you a flavour of the final practical exam has been made available on the course web site and is the topic for the Week 10 tutorial. Please give yourself the opportunity to solve the given problem under exam conditions prior to the tutorial to get the most out of the exercise.
The final exams are scheduled to be held on Tuesday 3 December starting at 1:15pm in K17 ground floor and basement labs. The exams are scheduled to conclude at 5:45pm.
The lecture this Wednesday will discuss the design of the Blackjack Player that has in previous years been used as a final lab exercise to prepare students for the practical exam. It is not included in this year's lab exercises due to shortness of time.
I recommend that you read the Blackjack Player notes carefully before attending the lecture, and attempt the design on paper if you have the time.
We have now completed a description of the additional requirements for Lab 11 and added these to the Week 9 & 10 (Lab 11) resources on the lab page. Note that we also provide you with skeleton code for Part 2.
We have now completed a description of the additional requirements for Lab 9 and added these to the Week 8 (Lab 9) resources on the lab page. Note that we also provide you with skeleton code for Part I.
Hello. We have now completed a description of the requirements for Lab 7 and added these to the Week 6 & 7 (Lab 7) resources on the lab page. Note that we also provide you with skeleton code for Part 4.
Please be advised that additional requirements and notes have been posted for Lab 4 , which is due this week. A further TWO MARKS will be awarded for Lab 4 in addition to the 3 marks given for successfully completing Parts 1, 2 and 4. The additional marks available are awarded within the outlined 35 mark envelope available for lab work. I apologise for the late notice of these additional requirements.
Similar additional requirements and notes will be released for Labs 7, 9 and 11. We will have these prepared and posted as soon as possible.
Please ensure that you have Labs 1-4 marked off by the end of Week 7. From Week 8 on we will only be marking the currently due lab i.e. we will be marking Lab 7 in Weeks 7-8, Lab 9 in Weeks 8-9, and Lab 11 in Weeks 9-10.
The quiz has been marked, and your lab marks as we had them recorded last Friday evening have been entered into our SMS database. You can check your marks using the bar graph symbol at the end of the menu on the left side of the class website.
The quiz marks were quite good, with mean=13.3, stdev=4.1 - 27% scored an HD, 15% a DN. 19% a CR and 19% a PS. I think if you scored 8/20 or less, you are in the danger zone.
If you would like to see your marked quiz, you may do so on Wednesday at 4pm in OUD lab, next door to the LYRE lab.
If your lab marks are incorrectly recorded, please see your lab demonstrator.
Please be reminded that we have a class test for COMP3222/9222 tomorrow commencing at 2:45 pm sharp.
Please make your way to the usual lecture theatre, Ainsworth G02, by 2:30 pm to start and finish the test on time.
This 1 hour test is closed book i.e. no aids of any form , including calculators, are permitted.
