This course is broken into five Modules, each having associated homework and a quiz:

Module 1: Background:
Background information on electricity, resistors, and circuit diagrams

Module 2: Resistive Circuits:
Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's Law, Resistors in series and in parallel, Systematic Solution Methods, Physical applications, and Lab demos

Module 3: Reactive Circuits: 
Capacitors, Inductors, First and Second Order Differential Equations, RC and RL and RLC circuit steady-state and transient response to a DC source, Physical applications, Lab demos

Module 4: Frequency Analysis:
AC response, Impedance, Transfer functions, Frequency response, Filtering, Applications, Lab demos

Module 5:
Real and reactive power, power factor, transformers

Each module has a quiz associated with it, where the modules that take longer are assigned more credit in grading.  Each week has a homework associated with it that is due at the end of the week.
