#### Course Description

#### Intended Outcomes for the course

Upon completion of the course students should be able to:

- Use basic electrical DC concepts and theorems to analyze circuits.
- Build and simulate electrical DC circuits and perform measurements with electronic test equipment.
- Write technical reports using collected data.

#### Course Activities and Design

Lecture and discussion are the instructional methods used. Weekly homework is assigned. Laboratory activity includes building circuits on solder-less breadboards, making circuit measurements using test equipment, analyzing test data, and comparing to predictions using theory.

Lab exercises involve using a PC with spreadsheet, word processor, and circuit simulation software. The student is expected to learn the following in the lab:

Use the DMM (digital multi-meter) to measure resistance, voltage, and current.

Build circuits on a solder-less breadboard.

Use the DC power supply

Use the spreadsheet and word processor to process lab data and to write lab reports.

Use circuit simulation software to simulate circuits built in the lab.

#### Outcome Assessment Strategies

Evaluation is by exams, homework, and lab work.
