!! 23 Feb There is a consistent error in the homework 3 solutions!! It occurs in 2.18.b, 2.18.c, 2.18.e.

2.18.b: f(W,X,Y,Z)=XY'+Z'

2.18.c: f(V,W,X,Y,Z)=V'Y'Z+V'W'Y+VW'Y'+WZ'+WY

2.18.e: f(A,B,C,D)-A'C'+BC'

The groupings in the K-maps also need to be changed accordingly. Some of the solutions have the corrections.

5 Feb Here is this year's project information. The first checkpoint deadline has been extended to Monday, Feb 9th, at 5pm. The checkpoint should be turned in the box outside the laboratory (204b Cory) by 5pm to receive credit.

5 Feb The people who were in the Telebears waiting list have been processed and should verify that they are now enrolled in the class through Infobears. If you were not in the waiting list and are not in the class (according to Infobears), then you should add manually through 308 McLaughlin Hall. Everyone who is enrolled in the class and does not have access to 123 Cory should go to 391 Cory, fill out the YELLOW form and CORRECTLY provide them with the TYPED number at the bottom of your card key (not the HAND-WRITTEN one).
