 Course Description The aim of this course is to teach students theoretically  Resistors, capacitors; coils, basic semiconductor elements; diode, transistor and other types of circuit elements; the use of basic measuring and measuring instruments (voltmeter, ammeter, ohmmeter, etc.); conductor, insulator, semiconductor; direct current, alternating current, series, parallel, mixed circuits and related laws (current, resistance, Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff Voltage Law, power); number systems, logical gate circuits; Boolean mathematics (Boolean law, Morgan theorem, Karnough map); digital circuit design; counters

 General Learning Outcomes On successful completion of this course students should be able to:Understand the basic principles of resistor, capacitors and inductanceUnderstand the basic semiconductor elementsUnderstand and use basic measuring instrumentsUnderstand the DC and AC current circuitsPractice arithmetic computations in binary numbering system.Explain the basic operations and theorems of Boolean algebra. Apply rules of Boolean algebra to simplify Boolean expressions. Explain how to translate Boolean expressions into equivalent truth tables and logic gate implementations.Design efficient combinational and sequential logic circuit implementations from functional description of digital Systems.

 Teaching Methodology / Classroom Procedures The course has three hours of lectures in a week mainly held in the class.There is no lab works or tutorials.There is one written midterm exam and one written final exam.The exams are conducted as a written exam. Class attendance is compulsory.Lecture notes are available on the course web site.Course related materials will be posted on the course web site.Students are encouraged to use internet to search for various related topics. Lecture notes, assignments, and announcements will be posted on the course's web site.

 Rules and Obligations Each student can have only one make-up exam. One who misses an exam should provide a medical report within 3 days after the missed exam. The make-up exam will be organized at the end of the term after the finals and will cover all the topics. No make-up will be given for any quiz, project, presentation or assignment.Once the grades are announced, the students have only one week to do objection about their grades.It is the students' responsibility to follow the announcement in the course web site.

 Background Requirements Students are expected to have a computer hardware background at minimum undergraduate level for registering the course.Students who lack an official proof (such as undergraduate transcript) of the required academic background must acquire a written permission from the course instructor for registering the course.

 Method of Assessment Evaluation and Grading Homework(s) Quizzes Midterm Exam Final Exam Percentage 10 % 20 % 30 % 40 %

 Grading Criteria * A A- B+ B B- C+ C C- D+ D D- F 90 - 100 85 - 89 80 - 84 75 - 79 70 - 74 65 - 69 60 - 64 56 - 59 53 - 55 50 - 52 40 - 49 0 - 39

* Letter grades will be decided upon after calculating the averages at the end of the semester and distribution of the averages will play a significant role in the evaluation of the letter grades.
