Below are weekly modules for ECE 252. Each one contains a reading assignement, videos, tutorials, a homework assignment, and a practice quiz. You should study each module in order as it occurs in the schedule.

Select an option:

* Lesson 1 Basic Elements and Circuit Laws.
* Lesson 2 Resistors in Series and Parallel.
* Lesson 3 Circuit Solving with Kirchhoff's Laws.
Modules 4 & 5 are for EEs only. They are not used in this course.
* Lesson 6 Thevenin's Theorem, Maximum Power Transfer, and Superposition.
* Lesson 7 Inductors and Capacitors and Their Uses.
* Lesson 8 First Order Circuits
* Lesson 9 Second Order Circuits.
* Lesson 10 Sinusoids, Complex Numbers, and Periodic Waves.
* Lesson 11 AC Circuits.
* Lesson 12 Power in AC Circuits.
And now the numbers get confusing...
* Lesson 13B Three-Phase Power.
* Lesson 15 Frequency Response of Simple Circuits.
* Lesson 16 Computer Circuits.
* Lesson 17 Solid-State Circuits.
