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
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.
