Practical Electronics with a Theoretical Background

This one-hour class will be taught by Ben Bradley. In it, you will learn electronics fundamentals and theory so that you can better understand how components work together.

It is the first of three classes in a series that will cover:

Schematic diagrams and conventions
Conductors And Insulators
DC Voltage Sources
Voltage and Current
Ohm's Law
Resistors in Series and Parallel
Voltage and Current Laws
Demonstration/Lab: Voltage-Current curve of resistor, incandescent lamp, LED
Capacitance and Capacitors
Inductance and Inductors
Diodes and Transistors

This class may run a bit longer than an hour, so it may pick up another half-hour depending on student interests and questions.

Come to Freeside and do epic stuff!

Additional info:
Email [masked] for more details or if you have a question. There is a gate code to get into the complex, which you can get by emailing [masked] with the subject: gatecode

    Helpful: I'm building a grade 9 math course and needed ideas for practical applications. I think we'll put some circuits and LED models into the curriculum. Also helpful for understanding why my arduino projects are failing ;)

    Looks like a great class! Anything that connects the practical to the mathematical is of great interest, but alas, i'll be in Canada for the easter weekend. i'll catch the next one :)

      Hi, Greg, will you still be in Canada this Sunday? We delayed the class a weed due to last Sunday being Easter. Hope you can make it.
