# EE 201: Fundamentals of Electric Circuits

**Summary:**

Introduction to DC and AC circuits. The course includes basic circuit theorems: Kirchoff voltage and current laws, series and parallel circuit, superposition principle, Thevenin and Norton theorems. Techniques of circuit analysis: Nodal and mesh analysis, Sinusoidal sources and the concept of phasors in circuit analysis.

**Text Book:**

“Introductory Circuit Analysis” By Robert L. Boylestad, 12th (or 11th or 10th) Edition, Published by Prentice Hall, 2001.

**Grading Policy:**

Mid-Term Exams: 20% + 20%

Home Works + Quizzes 20%

Final Exam 40%

**Mid-term Exams:**

First mid-term Exam: Sunday, 20 October 2019

Second Mid-Term Exam: Wednesday, 25 November 2019

**Notes:**

1. All mid-term exams will be performed after Maghreb prayers

2. If you miss any mid-term exam, there will be no makeup test for any given reasons

3. The only allowed calculator during Mid-term and Final exams is “**Casio FX-991ES” **or “**Casio FX-991ES Plus**”.

**Attendance Policy:**

Attendance will be taken at every lecture. Students with less than 75% attendance will be forbidden from entering the final exam. In addition, all students who are late more than five minutes for the lectures will not be allowed to enter the classroom.

**Cheating Policy:**

Cheating and plagiarism of any kind will not be tolerated. This includes giving answers as well as taking them. This applies to any course work, tests, quizzes and homework. Each person’s answers to an assignment should be his alone and should not be identical to another student’s work. Cheating will result in a grade of "F" for all persons involved, if convicted.
