Curriculum Bank for Individualized Electronic Instruction. Final Report.
Williamson, Bert; Pedersen, Joe F.
Objectives of this project were to update and convert to disk storage appropriate handout materials for courses for the electronic technology open classroom. Project activities were an ERIC search for computer-managed instructional materials; updating of the course outline, lesson outlines, information handouts, and unit tests; and storage of the revised materials on magnetic media. Revisions were completed for the course, Electronic Fundamentals--DC, and were begun for a second course, Electronic Fundamentals--AC. Following the 11-page narrative are appendixes providing curricula for the two courses, Electronic Fundamentals--DC and Electronic Fundamentals--AC, which include unit outlines with objectives, assignments, laboratory experiments, information sheets, and quizzes. The 10 units in the first course cover introduction to electronics; Ohms Law; series circuits; parallel circuits; series/parallel circuits; voltage and current dividers; direct current meters; conductors, resistors, batteries; Kirchoff's laws; and network theorems. The 10 units in the second course cover electromagnetic induction, characteristics of AC, inductance, inductive reactance, inductive circuits, capacitance, capacitive reactance, capacitive circuits, alternating circuits, and resonance. Other appendixes include standard schematic diagrams, sample laboratory report form, safety guidelines, and a bibliography. (YLB)
