GRADING AND COURSE MATERIALS
Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)
  • 1
    Students completing this course will master analysis of physical circuits through the use of Kirchhoff's laws and ideal circuit element models.
    [C001]
  • 2
    Strong emphasis is placed on the formulation of nodal equations for linear resistive circuits as a foundation, but generalizations necessary for handling nonlinear elements are also highlighted.
    [C002]
  • 3
    Consequences of linearity are emphasized through superposition and Thevenin/Norton equivalents.
    [C003]
  • 4
    Transient analysis of second order circuits with unit step inputs and switched dc sources is emphasized to promote understanding of time-domain linear circuit response.
    [C004]
  • 5
    For linear circuits excited with sinusoidal sources, phasor and frequency domain analysis techniques for determining steady state response are emphasized.
    [C005]
  • 6
    Application of complex power calculations is also highlighted.
    [C006]
  • 7
    Finally, students will master concepts of coupled inductors and transformers as an illustration of the general two-port concept.
    [C007]

ACADEMIC POLICIES
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

By enrolling in this course, each student assumes the responsibilities of an active participant in UW-Madison’s community of scholars in which everyone’s academic work and behavior are held to the highest academic integrity standards. Academic misconduct compromises the integrity of the university. Cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, unauthorized collaboration, and helping others commit these acts are examples of academic misconduct, which can result in disciplinary action. This includes but is not limited to failure on the assignment/course, disciplinary probation, or suspension. Substantial or repeated cases of misconduct will be forwarded to the Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards for additional review. For more information, refer to https://conduct.students.wisc.edu/academic-integrity/

ACCOMMODATIONS FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

McBurney Disability Resource Center syllabus statement: “The University of Wisconsin-Madison supports the right of all enrolled students to a full and equal educational opportunity. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Wisconsin State Statute (36.12), and UW-Madison policy (Faculty Document 1071) require that students with disabilities be reasonably accommodated in instruction and campus life. Reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities is a shared faculty and student responsibility. Students are expected to inform faculty [me] of their need for instructional accommodations by the end of the third week of the semester, or as soon as possible after a disability has been incurred or recognized. Faculty [I], will work either directly with the student [you] or in coordination with the McBurney Center to identify and provide reasonable instructional accommodations. Disability information, including instructional accommodations as part of a student's educational record, is confidential and protected under FERPA.” http://mcburney.wisc.edu/facstaffother/faculty/syllabus.php

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Institutional statement on diversity: “Diversity is a source of strength, creativity, and innovation for UW-Madison. We value the contributions of each person and respect the profound ways their identity, culture, background, experience, status, abilities, and opinion enrich the university community. We commit ourselves to the pursuit of excellence in teaching, research, outreach, and diversity as inextricably linked goals.


The University of Wisconsin-Madison fulfills its public mission by creating a welcoming and inclusive community for people from every background – people who as students, faculty, and staff serve Wisconsin and the world.” https://diversity.wisc.edu/
