Course Material and Objectives
: ECEGR 2632 is a first course in basic cir
cuit theory and the
first in a sequence of two circuits courses required for the major. Material dealing with
basic concepts, DC circuits, first
-
order transients, AC circuits, and AC power will be
covered. A tentative outline is shown below.

This course is certified as a General Education Critical Thinking Intensive course and is
designed to develop and improve your thinking abilities with resp
ect to electrical circuit theory
and design. Therefore your work will be graded based on how you think and the solutions you
obtain. You should make it your aim to
show your thinking and your approach

to every
problem and design you do. The following go
als are designed to help you develop your
engineering skills and thinking abilities.

At the completion of the course, a student will be able to

1)

analyze DC and AC circuits in order to determine values of specified voltages and
currents by applying princip
les of mathematics and physics;

2)

understand energy storage components and the transient responses associated with
them;

3)

calculate power supplied or absorbed in DC circuits, and apparent, real, and
reactive powers in AC circuits;

4)

design simple circuits su
ch as one to produce a specified voltage, to transfer
maximum power, or to correct a power factor; and

5)

develop and present systematic, clear, and concise solutions to engineering circuit
problems.


Homework
: A total of 50 homework problems will be assign
ed, collected, and graded. Each
will count 2 points for a total of 100 points.

Homework assignments are posted on the web
at
http://www.eng.ysu.edu/~rhfoulke
. Also posted are the
format requirements
to b
e
observed when preparing
written homework assignments

and a selection of homework
problem solutions.

For more problem
-
solving practice, you should study the examples in
the text and work the practice problems.

Hour tests
: At the end of each topic [see t
he outline], a one

Final exam
: One 1

Gra
ding
: Course grades will be based on the percentage of points earned on the hour tests, the
final exam, and homework. Assignment of letter grades is based on the following: in order
to earn an ‘A’, the percentage must be at least 90%; to earn a ‘B’, bet
ween 80% and 90%; a
‘C’, between 70% and 80%; and a ‘D’, between 60% and 70%.


Other Information
: Attendance will not be used directly in calculating the course grade.
However, class attendance is essential for good performance. Each student is responsi
ble
for all material presented in class.
Attendance is required

on all test and assignment
-
due
dates. No make
-
ups will be given and no late assignments accepted unless prior
arrangements are made with the instructor.
