Day 5 of Linear Circuits.  Students are introduced to Kirchhoff's Current Law (KCL) and Kirchhoff's Voltage Law (KVL).  While there are fancy equations explaining these two laws in most textbooks, we present a simple, easy way to remember what they are, what they mean, and how they work.  When you really, really understand these equations, it is amazing how much you can do.

The material covers all of the lecture material from a fifth lecture in a traditional, sophomore-level linear circuits class.
