    Students are juniors and seniors. Math proficiency, such as algebra and trigonometry, is required. The level of the student ranges throughout the spectrum of abilities. The student who elects "Electronics" does so mainly of personal interest and therefore self-motivation is expected.

  O b j e c t i v e s

    Students should acquire familiarity with a broad range of concepts which may be encountered directly in everyday life: Electronics is at the core a wide variety of specialized technologies that have been developing over several decades. In recent years, a great many consumer electronic products have been introduced and the traditional radio and television receivers have become more complex. Mainly an introduction to electronics, the course is highly content oriented and not demanding, mathematically. The vocabulary of this course is specialized and precise.

  T e x t b o o k

    "Electricity and Electronics" by H. H. Gerrish and W. E. Dugger (The Goodheart-Willcox Co., 1989). Several handouts on various special topics in electronics. Materials used in this course come from a wide variety of semiconductor technology.
