Electricity/Electronics Systems. Laboratory Activities.
Sutherland, Barbara, Ed.
This electricity/electronics guide provides teachers with learning activities for secondary students. Introductory materials include an instructional planning outline and worksheet, an outline of essential elements, a list of objectives, a course description, and a content outline. The guide contains 35 modules on the following topics: electrical energy and work; general safety and the electronics lab; wiring light fixtures and receptacles; wiring a fixture and two three-way switches; a soft drink circuit; semiconductor junction diode characteristics; half-wave rectifier characteristics; full-wave rectifier characteristics; bridge rectifier characteristics; full-wave voltage doubler characteristics; the A-BUS; electronic components; binary to decimal numbers (computer); number conversions; seven-segment display; thermistors and temperature; computer-controlled traffic lights; electronic Etch-A-Sketch; light-intensity sensor; programmable logic controllers; stepper motors; catalog pricing; digital dice; printed circuit boards; electric motors; volt-ohm-milliammeter that measure voltage; electric meters; electrical use logs; semiconductors; resistor color code/ohmmeter familiarization; AC-DC waveform/oscilloscope familiarization; Ohm's law; series resistive circuits; parallel resistive circuits; and electronic schematics. Each module includes an instructor's resource sheet and the student laboratory activity. Each instructor's resource sheet may include the following elements: module number; activity topic; estimated time; essential elements; objectives; activity summary; teaching tips; instructional strategy; equipment/supplies; evaluation key; and support materials. Each student activity may include the following elements: module number; activity topic; activity overview; objectives; vocabulary/concepts reinforced; equipment/supplies; introduction; procedure; evaluation; and support materials.
