The broad aims of the course are to teach students 1) to learn the
concepts and principles which apply to electric circuit analysis, and 2) to
develop problemsolving skills by emphasizing the application of conceptual
understanding to the solution of electric circuit problems. Specifically, the
student is to be able to
i) use the basic electric circuit elements
(resistance, capacitance and inductance) and element and circuit laws to
develop models of practical electrical systems.
ii)
use the analytical and
measurement techniques developed in the course to determine currents, voltages
and power associated with any element in an electric circuit.
iii)
use the knowledge of the
principles and techniques developed in the course to design simple and
practical electric circuits.

Practice
Problems/Tutorials/Quizzes
There are no marked
assignments in the course. Practice problems (with answers), additional worked
examples, etc. are given in the course manual. Students are expected to learn
the topics in the course through the lecture material and selfdirected
solution of the practice problems.
Quizzes based on selected questions from the assigned practice problems
will be given during alternate tutorial sessions on Tuesdays. The topics to be
covered in the quizzes are indicated by the questions in the practice problems.
The scheduled tutorial sessions will address students' questions on the
practice problems, as well as cover additional examples. Solutions to the
quizzes will be posted in the appropriate classroom and duplicating centre
(EN1017) following the quiz sessions on Tuesdays.
There will be 5 laboratory
experiments with prelabs. The prelabs are to be completed before the lab
period. Each team, consisting of two students, is required to submit one lab
book (Physics Lab book) incorporating the prelab, results, observations,
calculations, graphs, notes and conclusions for each experiment. Lab books are
to be submitted to the Teaching Assistants at the end of the laboratory
session. It is mandatory for students to perform all 5 experiments.
Failure to complete all the
laboratory experiments will result in an INCOMPLETE grade.
Quizzes, Tests and
Examinations
Note that programmable calculators or calculators with text storage and
graphics capabilities, and aids (formula sheets, etc) are not allowed in tests,
quizzes and examinations.
Students are expected to maintain academic integrity in the course.
Cheating on quizzes, tests and examinations will be dealt with severely
in accordance with the procedures outlined under Academic
Misconduct in the University Calendar.
