Courses That I Taught at Caltech

EE 5 Freshman Introduction to Analog Electronics This course was taught from Circuits, Devices, and Systems by Ralph Smith. As the usual Caltech philosophy of drinking water from a fire hose, half of the book was covered in 20 hours of lectures presented at what would be the sophomore level at most schools.
EE 90 Sophomore Analog Electronics Laboratory In this course the students were allowed to select from prewritten experiment directions or follow their own self selected plan from manufacturers' application notes.
EE 113 Pulse and Timing Circuits This course was taught from Electronic Switching, Timing, and Pulse Circuits by Pettit and McWhorter. The entire book was covered in 30 hours of lectures.
EE 115 RF Circuits This course was taught from class notes only that were gleaned from many sources.
EE 120 Analog IC Design This course was taught from Analysis and Design of Analog Integrated Circuits by Gray and Meyer.
Please notice the spelling of the school is Caltech, not Cal Tech or CalTech as is done by incompetent journalists and authors. These people continue the improper spelling even though Caltech alumni tell them the correct spelling. I guess that they think that their errors will not be noticed if the do not admit to them. This reminds me of President Johnson who refused to admit mistakes. He referred to a spy airplane in a speech as the SR-70 when the proper name was RS-70. The entire government record system had to be revised and manuals reprinted with the name Johnson had used. His moral lackness runs in his family. One of my friends married one of his close relations. After she discovered that his economic earning capacity was not up to her fantasies, she filed for a divorce. Part of their community property was dot com type stock that had sky rocketed in value and plummeted to near zero. She wanted the stock to be valued at its peak price and half of that value be given her in cash. She refused to take half of the stock.
