Description: An intuitive knowledge of circuit analysis is critical to the success of students in the electrical field. It is regrettable that the typical sophomore becomes so overwhelmed by the abstract aspects of the subject that he/she loses sight of its intuitive nature. A lecture technique is available that employs the personification of circuit elements to describe their behavior and interaction. Not only does this technique help to retain student interest, it also improves comprehension. A related technique is available to help reduce the occurrence of sign errors when performing mesh analysis. This paper describes the application of these techniques in an introductory circuit analysis course.
