This paper analyzes a first-year introduction to electrical engineering course at (REDACTED). The purpose of the course is three-fold: to introduce new students to the major through a number of engaging laboratory exercises, to introduce new students to other students in their cohort and to electrical engineering faculty at the university, and to reinforce high-school-level mathematics in the context of engineering problems.
This work-in-progress paper will analyze the effectiveness and impact in subsequent courses caused by implementing engineering mathematics into this introductory electrical engineering course. The study will consist of a grade comparison between students who took the introductory course in the three years before the inclusion of engineering math content and those who took the introductory course in the two years after the addition of engineering math content.
