Schedule: 11:00 AM - 11:50 AM M,W, F in MSEC 101
This course will cover the material contained in chapters 1 through 5, and chapters 10 through 13 of your text "Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering" by Leonard Bobrow. The course presents fundamental information about linear circuit analysis, electrical instrumentation using operational amplifiers, design of combinational and sequential digital circuits, and DC and AC motors
Much of the course will be dealing with mathematical descriptions of the above material, but the goal is for physical understanding of their behavior.
Homework will be given on a regular basis and graded. This homework grade will account for approximately fifteen percent of the semester grade.
There will be three tests plus a final with the final counting about 1.3 times the other tests. All of the tests will be structured to determine understanding of the material not to see if you remember a similar problem or can figure out which formula to plug into. This means that throughout the semester you must strive to understand the "why" not just the "how" in working homework and discussing examples. Short quizes may be given at any time, and any student may be called upon to discuss any assigned work.
