Meeting Time: Tuesday/Thursday 1:15-2:45 PM in the CCRMA
Ballroom at the Knoll
Homework: Weekly required assignments and reading. Homework will sometimes include a lab experiment/study
Exams: Midterm and Final
Projects: A final class project is required. Students are encouraged to choose "hands-on" types of projects, such as building a new musical instrument, conducting a perceptual experiment with subjects, or creating a physical-model based computer simulation. Alternatively, a musical acoustics literature review on a specific subject can be conducted. In either case, a written report must be submitted by the end of the last week of classes. The report for the literature review, however, should be significantly larger and more in-depth than that for the "experimental" studies. A written one-page proposal is required by the third week of the quarter.
Grading: The grading is based on the homework/labs (35%), exams (midterm - 15%, final - 25%), and final project (25%)
