This course is Week 8 of an 8 week series that teaches electronics to professionals, students and hobbyists desiring to know how electronic circuits work. This first 8 weeks has the name "DC Electronics" in most college electronics degree programs because it teaches the following concepts about electronics:
 The atomic structure of conductors, insulators and semiconductors
 The definition of the major characteristics of electronics: Resistance, Current, Voltage and Power
 The use of Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's Voltage and Current Laws, the Voltage Divider and Current Divider Formulas and how to apply them to basic resistive circuits.
 Practice solving series resistive circuits, parallel resistive circuits, and the topic for this week's class: solving seriesparallel resistive circuits.
The class is presented primarily as a PowerPoint presentation with instruction by your teacher.
Quizzes are presented at the end of each section of the course to test your knowledge and comprehension of the material presented in that section.

instructor then, in detail, walks you through the process of
identifying the potential next steps, and how to apply the rules of
series circuits, parallel circuits and seriesparallel circuits to
completely solve the example circuit.


Lecture 9  12:52  
Lectures 7 through 11 present an example seriesparallel circuit. The
instructor then, in detail, walks you through the process of
identifying the potential next steps, and how to apply the rules of
series circuits, parallel circuits and seriesparallel circuits to
completely solve the example circuit.


Lecture 10  08:51  
Lectures 7 through 11 present an example seriesparallel circuit. The
