Electricity I

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. This course begins with the coverage of SI units, scientific notation, and electrical quantities. This course then proceeds with Ohm's law, electrical power, series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits, which are the backbone of electric circuit theory. This course concludes with an introduction to Magnetism/Electromagnetism, alternating current/voltage and the mathematical analysis of sinusoidal waveforms. This course has five hours per week overall; three hours of theory/lecture class time per week configured as: one, one-hour class, and one, two-hour class, and lab class time configured as a two-hour lab per week.
