Involvement of simulation in teaching is provide a batter support, more clear and visual operation of complex circuits to the Faculty members of electrcs circuits in classroom teaching. The simulation available for simulation of electrc circuits are MATLAb and C+ and many more.  Use of the simulation in classroom teaching is provide an additional support to the Faculty members and its better then the time consuming black board practice. This paper provides a case study of  electrcs circuits as RC, RL and RLC in Matlab software. Different  electrcs circuit model are prepared on Matlab software and generate simulation voltage forms. This paper is helpful for to find the applications of Matlab in teaching.
