#### Course Description

#### Intended Outcomes for the course

Upon successful completion of the course students should be able to:

1. Solve equations related to analog electronic circuits and digital circuits using algebra, trigonometry, and basic geometry.

2. Use dimensional analysis to convert between systems of units found in typical situations when working with equipment, and applying processes encountered by a technician on the job.

3. Demonstrate troubleshooting skills to solve equations as it applies to electronic engineering.

#### Course Activities and Design

In addition to lecture content and inquiry based lecture activities, students will using scientific graphing calculators to solve problems. Campus and/or distance modalities may be used. In-class time is primarily activity emphasizing problem solving and active learning.
