James A. Svoboda – ECE Department, Clarkson University has created numerous interactive examples throughout the textbook – Introduction to Electric Circuits. Interactive Examples made of Java Applets.
The Interactive Exercise shown here considers a similar, but different, circuit. Like the Interactive Example, the Interactive Exercise poses a problem, then accepts and checks the user’s answer. Student learning is further supported by extensive help, in the form of worked example problems, available from within the Interactive Exercise using the “Worked Example” button.
The Circuit Design Lab consists of several Java applets, each providing an opportunity to experiment with the design of a particular circuit:
Variations of this problem are obtained using the “New Problem” button. We can peek at the answer using the “Show Answer” button. The Interactive Example and Exercises provide hundreds of addition practice problems with countless variations, all with answers that are checked immediately by the computer.
