Electronics Teacher's Guide. Science and Technology Document Series No. 40.
This is the second document on the teaching of electronics to appear as part of UNESCO's science and technology education program. An introductory section describes the role that electronics plays as part of the physics curriculum. The following section outlines the content of the electronics course. The outline includes guidelines for determining the course content. The remainder of the document is divided into two parts that present the nine sections of the course. The theme of the three sections in the first part is switching. The theme of the six sections in the second part is integrated circuits. The nine section topics are: (1) useful electronic components; (2) switches; (3) logic circuits; (4) logic gates; (5) bistable circuits; (6) drivers; (7) coding; (8) the pulser, the astable, and the clocked bistable; and (9) counting circuits. Each section contains experiments related to the topic that include investigation questions and notes about the experiment. An attached workbook at the back of the document contains student worksheets for the experiments in each of the sections. Two appendices provide a bibliography and technical details for the electronic modules involved in the experiments. (MDH)
