OVERVIEW
  This hands-on half-course builds on the Science 9 Unit, Introduction to Electricity. Students work their way through concepts in and analog and digital circuitry employing curriculum designed specifically for our RSGC ACES program. Topics include power, prototyping, semiconductors, integrated circuits, communication as well as safety, environmental, and societal awareness. This course provides the foundation for our subsequent TEI3M Arduino 11 course.
EMPHASIS
  Part 1 of this course focuses on the fundamental electronics underlying all computer technology.

STRATEGIES   Units are project based. Teacher demonstrations and hands-on circuit research and assembly provide the students with the necessary terminology and methodology to meet the expectations. Classroom discussions, collaborative and co-operative learning, research, report writing and taking notes will assist students in achieving success. Upon completion of this course, students will demonstrate the ability to apply skills and knowledge to practical situations that involve the completion of work assignments and problem-solving activities.
