Introduction to electrical engineering. Basic circuit and systems concepts. Mathematical models of components. Kirchhoff's laws. Resistors, sources, capacitors, inductors, and operational amplifiers. Solution of first and second order linear differential equations associated with basic circuit forms. Prerequisite: either MATH 126 and MATH 307, which may be taken concurrently or MATH 136; PHYS 122.
This quarter, we will work toward developing the fundamental tools of linear circuit analysis which will be useful to all engineers. We will learn the "alphabet" of circuits, including wires, resistors, capacitors, inductors, independent and dependent voltage and current sources, and operational amplifiers. EE215 prepares you for entrance into electrical engineering and more advanced courses in circuit analysis. EE215 consists of (a) three hours of lecture per week; (b) two hours of quiz section every week; and (c) three to four hours of lab every week.
