I wonder why that is. Has MIT run out of EE professors to teach the EE courses ?
Hi, very good question.
This is answered in the preface of the text book.´
Later, this evening, I´ll scan the preface of the book so you can read what it´s all about.

Jerry Sussman is very big on educational experiments this would be something I would expect him to be involved in, the "Analog Way" is more along these lines The Analog Way.

"This book is designed to serve as a first course in an electrical engineering or
an electrical engineering and computer science curriculum, providing students
at the sophomore level a transition from the world of physics to the world of
electronics and computation. The book attempts to satisfy two goals: Combine
circuits and electronics into a single, unified treatment, and establish a strong
connection with the contemporary worlds of both digital and analog systems.

These goals arise from the observation that the approach to introducing
electrical engineering through a course in traditional circuit analysis is fast
becoming obsolete. Our world has gone digital. A large fraction of the student
population in electrical engineering is destined for industry or graduate study
in digital electronics or computer systems. Even those students who remain in
core electrical engineering are heavily influenced by the digital domain."

If I had the maths, I'd go for it.

I just signed up. This should be interesting. I learned a lot of this stuff in the 70's....but afterall it was the '70s. I became a computer engineer back then, a logic designer to be more precise, so have forgotten most things analog. I just started getting into audio circuits/design in the last year or so. I've been modelling things in LTSpice and have built a couple of projects but nothing too fancy yet. I hope I can complete the course. Pretty sweet offer to have the chance.

The commute to class is great! I hope to have enough free time from other things to make it to the finish.

lots of equations
