Utah Effective Teaching Standards UETS STANDARD 4- Content Knowledge:  The teacher understands the central concepts, tools of inquiry, and structure of the discipline.   Standards for Engineering and Technological Literacy STEL 5: Influence of Society on Technological Development     5F. Analyze how an invention or innovation was influenced by its historical context. 5H. Evaluate a technological innovation that arose from a specific society's unique need or want. STEL 6: History of Technology  6C. Compare various technologies and how they have contributed to human progress.  6F. Relate how technological development has been evolutionary, often the result of a series of refinements to basic inventions or technological knowledge. 6G. Verify that the evolution of civilization has been directly affected by, and has in turn affected, the development and use of tools, materials and processes. 6H. Evaluate how technology has been a powerful force in reshaping the social, cultural, political, and economic landscapes throughout history.

Course Outcomes - Level 2

Learning Outcome

Course Outcomes - Level 2 Students will be able to describe the basic electronic concepts of voltage, amperage, resistance & power. Students will be able to use Ohm's and Watt's law to perform basic calculations in an electronic circuit. Students will be able to describe how voltage, amperage, power & resistance behave in series and parallel circuits and be able to calculate unknown quantities in a circuit. Students will be able to use a power supply, breadboard, basic components, and a digital multi-meter to build, test and troubleshoot basic electronic circuits. Students will be able to use a digital multi-meter, oscilloscope and digital logic probe to test, troubleshoot and repair faulty circuits. Students will be able to identify basic electronics components and describe the function of each component. Students will be able to identify and draw the basic schematic symbols used to represent electronics components in a circuit. Students will be able to use appropriate materials and equipment (including simulation software, CNC Mill, soldering iron) to design and build a working electronic circuit that is a solution to a technological problem and/or need. Students will be able to successfully calculate unknown quantities and complete labs associated with magnetism, electromagnetic induction, capacitors, semiconductors, transformers and alternating current. Based on a set of given inputs and desired outputs, students will be able to design a digital electronic circuit as a solution to a technological problem or need. Students will be able to collect technical data and to apply appropriate math and science knowledge to see the connections between technology and other fields of study. Students will be able to describe historical examples of discoveries, experiments, innovations and inventions related to electronics communications technology and be able to provide examples of technology transfer and how these technologies affected past and current society.
