Law

and usage
, electric
al and magnetic
fields

and their uses
,
electrical
potential

and properties
,
charge and current, resi
stance

usages
,
inductance and capacitance applications

and temperature
effects, DC resistive circuits, elect
rical energy, power efficiency

and correction
,

basic
filters

and their
application to variable frequency drives
,
impedance,
series circuits, paralle
l circuits, series
-
parallel
circuits,
control circuits,
electromagnetism

applications
, alternating current
generation and
transmission,
and
basic
industry
safety and electrical safety
.

Course Requirements
:

1. Class attendance will be taken and
3

points daily for attendance and participation will be given and
adjusted. If you need to be absent from a class, you can email me at the above em
ail address or call me at
my home number. There is a message machine on the home number and you can leave a message in

You are responsible for an
nouncements and assignments made in class.

2. Weekly test
s

will be given over material covered. These will include a section on the electrical terms
and definitions. If you miss or will miss a test, it is your responsibility to contact me and arrange f
or
an
early exam or

a

makeup exam. The exam will need to be completed the day or your return or 20

percent
will be taken off of the final points
.

The weekly test are used to give me an indication of how well I am
teaching and how well you understanding t
he material.

3.
Final exam will cover all material given during class instruction and contained within the chapters of
the text book read and covered for class.

Classroom Etiquette
:

Students who attend class are expected to be attentive and respectful.

or talking during lectures constitutes disruptive behavior. If you need to leave class early, please let me
know prior to the start of class. As a
courtesy

rin
ger off or put in on vibrate. Talking on your phone during class will not be tolerated. If you are
expecting

some type of emergency for which you may have to be contacted during class, please let me
know so that we
can be aware of the situation. I don’t

need to know what the emergency is, I just want to
be knowledgeable about the possible interruption to the class.

Disability Accommodations:

Reasonable accommodations are available for students who have a documented disability. A student
m
ust give notice of the existence of a disability and make a "direct and specific" request to the
Disabilities Coordinator

for accommodation. The Disabilities Coordinator will inform the instructor of
the accommodations needed

for the student. The disabil
ity will
not

be disclosed to the instructor by the
Coordinator and does not have to be disclosed to the instructor or classmates by the student. The
Disabilities Coordinator will provide all the information in regards to disclosure.
