Paper Description
This paper introduces analog and digital electronics. It assumes a basic familiarity with voltage, current flow, conductors & insulators, algebra, and the use of data graphs at upper highschool level. The course covers resistors, capacitors and inductors with d.c., diodes as oneway current elements, motors, robotics and control, logic gates, latches and memory. This is a 'flipped' paper. This means that new material is presented by way of videos, accessed online, rather than in lectures. Students MUST watch these videos before the relevant practical lab. We will discuss how a flipped paper should be tackled in the first lecture and workshop session.
Paper Structure
The paper is heavily supported with video material presented through Moodle.
Learning Outcomes
