Patrick, Dale R.
This curriculum for a 1-semester or 1-year course in electronics is designed to take students from basic through advanced electronic systems. It covers several electronic areas, such as digital electronics, communication electronics, industrial process control, instrumentation, programmable controllers, and robotics. The guide contains competencies (task lists), student competency records, and management sheets. Management sheets, which serve as lesson outlines covering 1 or more days, include the following: an introduction, performance objective, task/competency statement, equipment and supplies list, a performance standard, suggested references for teacher and student, activities, and evaluation criteria. Some of the topics covered are as follows: analyzing electrical and electronic systems, analyzing electrical system components, analyzing DC electrical circuit operation and component functions, investigating the principles of magnetism, AC system and component analysis, diode devices, amplifying devices, electronic oscilloscopes, and electronic power control systems. Appendixes include a course outline, definitions of terms, course objectives, laboratory equipment, laboratory supplies, eight-item bibliography, and suggested facility layout. (KC)
