Description

This package includes Pearson Mastering Engineering.

 

For courses in Introductory Circuit Analysis or Circuit Theory.

 

Challenge students to develop the insights of a practicing engineer

The fundamental goals of the best-selling Electric Circuits remain unchanged. The 11th Edition continues to motivate students to build new ideas based on concepts previously presented, to develop problem-solving skills that rely on a solid conceptual foundation, and to introduce realistic engineering experiences that challenge students to develop the insights of a practicing engineer. The 11th Edition represents the most extensive revision since the 5th Edition with every sentence, paragraph, subsection, and chapter examined and oftentimes rewritten to improve clarity, readability, and pedagogy–without sacrificing the breadth and depth of coverage that Electric Circuits is known for. Dr. Susan Riedel draws on her classroom experience to introduce the Analysis Methods feature, which gives students a step-by-step problem-solving approach.

Features

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

Emphasize the Relationship between Conceptual Understanding and Problem-Solving Approaches

· Practical Perspectives introduce chapters and provide real-world circuit examples. Every chapter begins by describing a practical application of the chapter content. At the end of each chapter, the Practical Perspective is revisited by performing a quantitative circuit analysis using the newly introduced material.

· New – Originating from author Susan Riedel’s own classroom experience, Analysis Methods are ‘recipes’ for students to help them get started on a problem with step-by-step directions that guide them to a problem’s solution.

· Revised – Chapter Problems reinforce problem solving as fundamental to the study of circuit analysis. Approximately 30% of the problems in the 11th edition are new or were rewritten.

Build an Understanding of Concepts and Ideas Explicitly in Terms of Previous Learning

· Expanded – Assessment Problems prompt students at key points in the chapter, asking them to stop and assess their mastery of a particular objective by solving one or more assessment problems.

· Updated – Fundamental Equations and Concepts are set apart from the main text to help readers focus on the key principles and help navigate through the important topics.

Provide Students with a Strong Foundation of Engineering Practices

· Expanded – Examples in every chapter illustrate the concepts presented in the text in the form of a numeric example. There are nearly 200 examples in this text, an increase of about 35% when compared to the previous edition. The examples illustrate the application of a particular concept and often employ an Analysis Method, and exemplify good problem-solving skills.

· Integration of Computer Tools assists students in the learning process by providing a visual representation of a circuit’s behavior, validating a calculated solution, reducing the computational burden of more complex circuits, and iterating toward a desired solution using parameter variation. Chapter problems suited for exploration with PSpice and Multisim are marked accordingly.
