Military Curriculum Materials for Vocational and Technical Education. Fundamentals of Electricity, 3-7.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
This self-paced correspondence course for independent study in electricity was adapted from military curriculum materials for use in vocational education. This basic course is designed to provide the student with some fundamentals of electricity--not with specific job skills. The seven lessons of the course each have a lesson assignment sheet with objectives, materials required, and suggestions. The lessons cover the following topics: electrostatics; electrokinetics; Ohm's Law and direct current circuits; alternating current, inductance, and capacitance; resistive-capacitive and resistive-inductive circuits; operation and characteristics of vacuum tubes; and operation and characteristics of transistors. Each lesson contains objectives, text, and review exercises. The answers to the exercises are programmed so that additional information is provided in the case of an incorrect choice, and immediate feedback is given on a correct choice. A 50-question multiple choice final examination, without answers, is included with the package. (KC)
