[6.002x] MITx certificates

Dear all,

The 6.002x certificates from MITx are now available for download. You should go to your 'Profile' page, and there will be a link to generate the MITx certificate. You can get it with and without the course grade.

I hope you are proud of your achievement, and that in the future you will continue to strive beyond the ordinary,

[6.002x] The End

Congratulations to everyone for finishing the final exam of 6.002x.

The last three months were some of the most difficult in your academic career so far -- the challenging engineering curriculum from MIT, the daily lab/lecture sessions at the Sant school, as well as the fact that the entire course was conducted in English. You should be very proud of having completed the course.

I believe that all of you have learned a lot about electrical engineering -- both theory and practice. The content of 6.002x is a crucial foundation for further studies in electrical engineering, and I hope that you will stay engaged with future follow-on courses from MITx. And, for those of you who did not completely master the content of 6.002x, you should consider re-enrolling in the class during the September session. (You can then spend this summer, among other things, by reviewing math fundamentals necessary for 6.002x.)

For your information, I will be leaving Mongolia on Sunday night. I will be available at the school on Saturday and Sunday, however, to discuss anything that you're interested in. I would love to see you there.

I hope to hear of your great work in the future,

[6.002x] Recommended problems

Hi all,

Here's a list of homework problems that I think you should review, as a minimum, in preparation for the final.
  • H1P3: Power in resistive networks
  • H2P3: Logic circuits
  • H3P1: SR model, static discipline
  • H5P1: MOSFET analysis
  • H6P4: Switched RC
  • H7P2: Switched LR
  • H8P1: Delta function input
  • H9P2: Differential equation
  • H10P2: Impedances
  • H11P1: More impedance
  • H12P2: Op-amp analysis

[6.002x] Final exam

Hello all,

This week, we will take the final exam for 6.002x. Like the midterm exam, you are given a number of days to complete the exam, though you are supposed to finish the exam in a single 24 hour session.

Important information:
  • My final day in Mongolia is June 10th (Sunday), so it is really crucial that we finish the exam this week.
  • As far as MITx is concerned, you are able to take the exam between June 7th (Thursday this week) to June 12th (Tuesday next week).
  • For 11th graders, due to the Mongolian college entrance exam, we must take the exam on June 7th (Thursday).
  • Otherwise, 9th and 10th graders are able to take the exam on Friday.
On Monday -- Wednesday, please come to the regularly scheduled lab hours and class sessions. I will go over exam review with each of you. 

To do well on the 6.002x exam, I request that you review the homework assignments that we've worked on over the past three months, and make sure that you understand the basic concepts underlying their solution.

See you tomorrow,
