# UTPA STEM/CBI Courses/Physics (Calculus Based)/DC Circuit(s)

Course Title: Physics for Scientists and Engineers

Lecture Topic: DC Circuits

Instructor: Edgar Corpuz

Institution: UTPA

## Backwards Design

Course Objectives

• Primary Objectives- By the next class period students will be able to:
• Identify series connection of resistors
• Identify parallel connection of resistors
• Analyze series/parallel dc circuits
• Sub Objectives- The objectives will require that students be able to:
• Draw circuits
• Identify electrical symbols
• Get the sum of fractions
• Get the reciprocal of a number
• Use voltmeter and ammeter

• Difficulties- Students may have difficulty:
• Identifying what elements are in series and what elements are in parallel.
• Using an ammeter.
• Real-World Contexts- There are many ways that students can use this material in the real-world, such as:
• Dissecting household circuits
• Understanding how christmas lights work
