Problems with teaching modern introductions to circuit analysis and design are well known and have been extensively documented over the past few decades. Inspired by a few of the researchers in the field, we have designed a collection of supplementary material to be presented in our introductory courses. This material is designed specifically to teach students how to solve problems in a practical manner. Starting off with a reintroduction to fundamental laws (such as Kirchhoff's and Thevenin’s), through addressing concepts such as zeros and poles, the material will provide students a scaffolding to use basic circuits principles and solve complex problems normally onerous to the apprentice electrical engineer. More advanced concepts such as switched capacitors circuits and broadband amplifiers are also covered. Finally, the entirety of this material is compiled for dissemination on a web page for the community at large.
