The final exam will have two parts: a written part and a hands-on
lab part. You’ll have one class period to complete the written part and another class period to complete the lab part.
The Written Part will cover material
that you’ve studied in Unit 6 through Unit 11 (in other words, Chapters 5, 6, and 7 of the textbook). For this part you are allowed

your own hand. But you are not allowed to use your computer, books,
All problems will
be similar to problems on Homework #6 through Homework #11, or to the practice sheets that we did in class.
On the Lab Part, you are allowed to use books, notes, handouts, and any files that you have saved on your computer’s hard drive (no laptop computers, cell phones, or flash drives). You will not have Internet access. Here are things I may ask you to
do on the lab part:

circuits using schematic entry, text entry, or a combination of the two entry methods.
Simulate your circuits.
Download your circuits to the DE2-115, and then use switches, push buttons, LEDs, and seven-segment displays to
verify correct operation.
