Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

1. The requirement for receiving positive final note is receiving of positive note from examination.

2. Final note is computed as an average value of notes received from all examinations that student has entered.

If the average note is equal to 2.0, student receives 2.0 as a final note.

If the average note is in interval (2.0, 3.0], student receives 3.0 as a final note.

If the average note is in interval (3.0, 3.5], student receives 3.5 as a final note.

If the average note is in interval (3.5, 4.0], student receives 4.0 as a final note.

If the average note is in interval (4.0, 4.5], student receives 4.5 as a final note.

3. The requirement for examination entering is receiving positive note from recitation classes.

4. Note from recitation classes is given on the basis of written tests, which verify student’s ability of solving the tasks presented in lectures and recitation classes.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Knowledge of linear direct and sinusoidal current circuits analysis methods. Usefull basic informations related to Fourier series, Laplace’s transform, Fourier transform and differential equations
