Basic Electricity/Electronics. Learning Guides.
Eggett, A. J.
This packet consists of 22 student learning guides for high school vocational education students in Illinois. The guides contain tasks for a course in electricity/electronics. Each task guide identifies the task and its purpose and provides a learning contract for the student and teacher to sign. Information on the learning contract consists of a terminal performance objective and microperformance objectives. For each microperformance objective, learning steps are listed, along with resources to complete the steps. Some task guides contain information sheets and some contain evaluation sheets with answers. Topics covered in the guides include the following: safety practices in the use of electrical tools and equipment, schematics, hand tools, soldering, basic electricity, Thevenin's and Norton's theorems, alternative power sources, Ohm's Law and power, electrical measurements, resistors and resistance, series resistive circuits, parallel resistive circuits, magnetism, electromagnetism, audio signal generators, inductance, capacitive circuits, RLC circuits, AC power, and semiconductors. (Some topics are covered in more than one task guide.) The task guides are designed for use in a competency-based individualized course. (KC)
