A one-semester course designed to educate the student in direct current electric circuit fundamentals. This course is the foundation and prerequisite for multiple electrical and electronic courses, in your program of studies. The course begins with the coverage of SI units, scientific notation, and electrical quantities. It proceeds with Ohm's law, electrical power, series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits, which are the backbone of electric circuit theory. The course concludes with an introduction to Magnetism/Electromagnetism, alternating current/voltage and the mathematical analysis of sinusoidal waveforms. This course has three hours of class time configured as one, one hour class, and one, two hour class, as well as one, two hour lab, per week.
