This is an introduction to Electronics-based Technology. The program encompasses electronics but is much more than a traditional electronics program. This course involves the study of systems and how they integrate with one another.
The course outline is as follows, and may vary in projects from year to year. In past years, we built fibre-optic signs, and 10 LED sequencers. Some students have also begun work on small audio amplifiers as a bonus project.
4011 Monostable – Turns an LED on for 10 seconds and then shuts off
4011 Alarm – Produces an audible alert for 10 seconds and then shuts off
4046 VCO – Voltage controlled oscillator – 10 LED Sequencer (1 of 3)
4017 Decoder – 1 of 10 decoder – 10 LED Sequencer (2 of 3)
4017 6 LED Sweeper – 10 LED Sequencer (Alternate 2 of 3)
4017 Electronic Dice Roller – 10 LED Sequencer (Alternate 2 of 3)
Timed Off – Timed off circuit – 10 LED Sequencer (3 of 3)
- Practical Shop Work – 50%
- Theory Assignments and Quizzes – 50%
The Practical Shop Work Mark is based on productivity, work habits, safety and cleanup while working on assigned projects, or assigned labs. The student will fill out a Technical Activity Report of work completed at the end of each period which will be assessed a mark out of 5, per day. A variety of labs will be assigned.
All students are expected to treat others with respect.
Absences do not excuse assignments.
This is an Educational Facility not a Repair Facility, and as such, no “outside work” or “for money” work is to be done. Mr. Wellwood will not “do the work” for you, be it using the tools, using the service manuals, or troubleshooting. YOU are the motivational force behind your success in this course. You give me your commitment, I will give you my help.
