Overall Educational Objective  Through handson experiments in laboratory, to acquire a solid understanding of the subjects and concepts related with the electricity and magnetics produced from static and moving charges which covered in the related Physics II course.  
Course Description  This laboratory course includes the topics related to electromagnetism. The laboratory experiments covered in this course are based on the measurement of current, magnetic fields and potential differences using proper tools. These tools are used for the purpose of determining some of the electrical parameters such as resistance, power, inductance and capacitance. Using magnetic field sensors, magnetic field around conductors having various geometries are measured and currentmagnetic field relations are obtained. Dependence of magnetic field strength with the distance from the source is also extracted. 
Course Learning Outcomes and CompetencesUpon successful completion of the course, the learner is expected to be able to:1) Explain the roles of circuit elements such as resistors, transformers, capacitors and inductors; 2) Demonstrate knowledge in electric circuits; 3) Explain mechanisms to produce magnetic fields around current lines and coils; 4) Apply the concepts of electric field and electric potential; 5) Collect data using a variety of equipment, record and organize data in tables and graphs, interpret data while estimating sources of error in a measurement, and draw conclusions; 6) Demonstrate awareness to work safely in laboratory environment.

Teaching Methods  Students should come to the laboratory as reading their experiments beforehand, and knowing the concepts of their experiments to be performed. They will perform the experiment by the help of the instructor. They are obligated to bring their lab. sheets and get it signed by the instructor at the end of the lab. They will graph their results in situ.  
Homework and Projects  No homework is given in this course  
Laboratory Work  Yes  
Computer Use  Calculator and ruler are required. Drawing their graphs with excel is suggested if the students bring notebook computer.

Course Administration 
Students are expected to attend min. 80% of the labs. There are only two makeups for the missed labs. The attendance performance is going to be reflected as 50% to the final grades. After makeups, if the student has less than 7 experiments performed, he will fail the course. The students will get 10% reduction from the attendance score for the experiment she/he misses. For instance, if a student finishes the lab. course with the min. of 7 experiments, he will receive 40% from the attendance score instead of 50%. Other 50% contribution to the final grade comes from the final exam. The students are expected to pursue in this class with honesty and integrity. Disciplinary action will be pursued in all instances if academic dishonesty and cheating has occurred. Students with disabilities should consult the instructor for their special needs.
