Our Current (LOL) unit is Electronics.
KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS
It is expected that students will:
- Identify the characteristics of series, parallel, and combination electrical circuits.
- Identify standardized schematic symbols using a chart.
- Distinguish between the functions and operations of fixed resistors, variable resistors, and photo resistors.
- Construct series, parallel, and combination electrical circuits.
- Sketch circuit diagrams using standardized schematic symbols.
- Construct and test physical electrical circuits based upon circuit diagrams.
- Integrate DC sources, lamps, switches, diodes, light emitting diodes, resistors, and capacitors into electrical circuits to achieve specific functions.
- Determine the value of a fixed resistor based upon the color codes on those resistors.
- Measure voltage, current, and resistance using a multimeter.
- Mathematically calculate voltage, current, and resistance using Ohm’s law.
- Design a circuit that uses a transistor as a switch.
