OUTCOMES AND OBJECTIVES
Outcome 1: Upon completion of this course, students will be familiar with electronic terminology and coding of components.

Objectives:

1. Explain the properties of a conductor, semiconductor, and insulator based on the Bohr model of an atom.
2. Determine the color-coded value of a 5%, 10%, and 20% tolerance resistor, using the EIA color code.

Outcome 2: Upon completion of this course, students will be able to calculate voltage, currents and resistance for different circuits.

Objectives:

1. Demonstrate the use of a DVOM on the voltage, current and resistance ranges given the proper equipment and components.
2. Calculate voltages, current, resistances and powers for a series circuit.
3. Calculate voltage, currents, resistances and powers for a parallel circuit.
