Blizzard Update: January 26, 2015

As I'm sure you've heard, Harvard is closed on what would have been our first class day, Tuesday, Jan. 27.
We'll essentially abandon that class day. It includes just one important notion that may be new to you: Thevenin's Theorem or his "model" of resistive circuits. We will talk of Thevenin on Thursday (Jan. 29) and then will hurry on into the more interesting (and challenging) material of Day 2.
Here are the typed classnotes for Day2. Please look through these, and leaf through Lab 2 so you'll know what's coming.
Class 2 notes: RC's (typed)

Spring INFORMATION: January 12, 2015

Course Information: intro and schedule Spring 2015
We will hold a normal class and lab on the very first day, Tues., Jan. 27: Please read class and lab notes for Day 1 before you come in.
The course meets in Science Center 206
1st-day Signup Form
Class 1 notes (typed): DC Circuits
Lab 1: DC Circuits
Lab 2: RC Circuits
