Screenshot

Course Description:

This eSyst DC/AC Circuits course is provided Maricopa Advanced Technology Education Center (MATEC). This course has 16 student learning outcomes, including: Define systems as it applies to electronics, list and explain the operation of the main building blocks and circuits of electronics systems; define basic electrical quantities and terms including current, voltage, power, resistance, and efficiency; define conductor, insulator, and semiconductor materials; determine resistance from color code and surface mount component codes and labels; identify and calculate a bridge circuit; define, calculate, and explain the effect of capacitive and inductive reactance; and state a basic method and procedure to troubleshooting and perform troubleshooting on basic DC and AC circuits. 

Course Contents:

Course materials include a 6-page course overview, numerous instructor presentations, student lab activity guides, and quizzes. The course overview includes a list of instructional materials, 16 learning outcomes, a detailed course outline, new system topics, and an explanation of the traditional view and systems view of courses in DC and AC circuits. Student lab activity guides may include the following sections: Purpose, Systems Rationale, Prerequisite Knowledge and Skills, Student Learning Outcomes, Process Overview, Time Needed, Task, and more.

For orientation purposes the 'eSyst - AC_DC Circuits' PDF is included as a separate attachment and offers a sample of the type of material included in this collection. 

Below is a list of the files contained within the .zip attachment. The size of each file is included in parenthesis.
