This guide is intended to help teachers give preparatory instruction in the development of basic manipulative skills, safety practices, technical knowledge, and related industrial information in order to prepare students for useful employment in the field of electronics. This first-year guide contains 6 units organized in 21 lesson plans. Each lesson plan contains an aim; lists of teaching aids, materials, and references; prerequisites for students; a step-by-step presentation of the lesson (including teaching points, student activities, and things for the teacher to do or say); applications; evaluation; and a summary. Many lesson plans also include information sheets, assignment sheets, tests with answers, task sheets, activities with answer keys, and transparency masters. The following topics are covered in the lesson plans: orientation to electronics, safety, mathematics, components and symbols, meter measurements, hand and power tools, soldering, circuit construction, electricity, series resistive circuits, parallel resistive circuits, complex resistive circuits, D.C. meter circuits, magnetism, alternating current, inductance, and capacitance. A brief bibliography completes the teacher's guide. The student workbook, keyed to the teacher's guide, includes all or several of the following elements for each lesson: information sheets, assignment sheets, tests, task sheets, student activities, and puzzles.
