ELECT 137


DC Circuits and Mathematical Modeling


Course Description

This course is the study of basic DC Fundamentals and mathematical modeling for the electronics careers which includes Ohm’s law, power law and Kirchhoff’s laws with application to solving series, parallel and series-parallel combination circuits. Other topics will include resistors, color code, magnetism, electromagnetism and test equipment. The mathematics skills needed for an electronics career will also be covered in this course. The student will be prepared to enter the second semester course of ELECT 138 AC Fundamentals and Mathematical Modeling. Laboratory experiments and project(s) are utilized to teach the use of test equipment and to demonstrate the principals taught in lecture.

Prerequisites

(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)

  • MATH 53 or one year of high school algebra.

Corequisites
