|Calendar Description||This course is a one semester introductory course in electric circuit analysis. The topics covered include the following: circuit variables and elements, resistive circuits, methods of circuit analysis, circuit theorems, energy storage elements, transient responses of RL and RC circuits, sinusoidal steady state analysis, and AC steady state power concepts.|
|Prerequisites||MTH 140 and MTH 141|
|Learning Objectives (Indicators)|
At the end of this course, the successful student will be able to:
NOTE:Numbers in parentheses refer to the graduate attributes required by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).
4.0 hours of lecture per week for 13 weeks
Note: In order for a student to pass a course with "Theory and Laboratory" components, in addition to earning a minimum overall course mark of 50%, the student must pass the Laboratory and Theory portions separately by achieving a minimum of 50% in the combined Laboratory components and 50% in the combined Theory components. Please refer to the "Course Evaluation" section for details on the Theory and Laboratory components.
|Examinations|| - Midterm exam in Week 6, 1.5 hours, close-book (covers Weeks 1-5 of lecture and laboratory material). The date and time of the midterm exam is on Tuesday, February 14, 2017 at 4pm.|
- Final exam, during exam period, 3 hours, closed-book (covers all course material)
|Other Evaluation Information|| - To achieve a passing grade, student must pass both the theory and laboratory/project components separately.|
- All quizzes, mid-term test and final examination will be closed book. Only the non-programmable approved calculator (Sharp EL546 or Casio fx-991MS and their later models) will be allowed.
- All lab reports will be assessed not only on their technical merits, but also on the communication skills of the students.

When possible, students are required to inform their instructors of any situation which arises during the semester which may have an adverse effect upon their academic performance, and must request any consideration and accommodation according to the relevant policies as far in advance as possible. Failure to do so may jeopardize any academic appeals.
Ryerson's Policy 60 (the Academic Integrity policy) applies to all students at the University. Forms of academic misconduct include plagiarism, cheating, supplying false information to the University, and other acts. The most common form of academic misconduct is plagiarism - a serious academic offence, with potentially severe penalties and other consequences. It is expected, therefore, that all examinations and work submitted for evaluation and course credit will be the product of each student's individual effort (or an authorized group of students). Submitting the same work for credit to more than one course, without instructor approval, can also be considered a form of plagiarism.
Suspicions of academic misconduct may be referred to the Academic Integrity Office (AIO). Students who are found to have committed academic misconduct will have a Disciplinary Notation (DN) placed on their academic record (not on their transcript) and will normally be assigned one or more of the following penalties:
The unauthorized use of intellectual property of others, including your professor, for distribution, sale, or profit is expressly prohibited, in accordance with Policy 60 (Sections 2.8 and 2.10). Intellectual property includes, but is not limited to:
