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:

* Module 0 Getting Started in ECE 252.

* Module 1 Basic Elements and Circuit Laws.
* Module 2 Resistors in Series and Parallel.
* Module 3 Circuit Solving with Kirchhoff's Laws.
Modules 4 & 5 are for EEs only. They are not used in this course.
* Module 6 Thevenin's Theorem, Maximum Power Transfer, and Superposition.
* Module 7 Inductors and Capacitors and Their Uses.
* Module 8 First Order Circuits
* Module 9 Second Order Circuits.
* Module 10 Sinusoids, Complex Numbers, and Periodic Waves.
* Module 11 AC Circuits.
* Module 12 Power in AC Circuits.
And now the numbers get confusing...
* Module 13B Three-Phase Power.
* Module 15 Frequency Response of Simple Circuits.
* Module 16 Computer Circuits.
* Module 17 Solid-State Circuits.
* Module 13A Operational Amplifiers.
* Module 18 Batteries, Voltage Regulators, Transformers, and Sensors.
* Module 19 DC and AC Machines.
* Module 14 Electrical Safety.

* Final Exam Prep.
