Introduction

Amplifier Teaching Aid is a teaching module made for teachers. It. is a ready-made lesson preparation and not a textbook. Therefore, you (the teacher) should already have some background knowledge on analog electronics. This module gives you all the material you need to run a course in basic analog electronics.

The module is divided into lessons/ each lesson is headed by a lesson plan followed by boardscripts, worksheets, and experiments. It also contains three evaluations which you can use as tests/exams or as advanced exercises. The lesson plans are not only containing the contents of the lesson, but also gives you the objectives and suggested methods and ways to carry out the lesson.

The following informs you about the purpose of every lesson plan column:

Time

-The 'Time' column is still blank, it is up to you to decide how much time you would like to spend on each topic. The average time per lesson is approximately 90 minutes.

Method

-The 'Method' column suggests a sample of teaching methods. Lesson plan 1 and 2 are already filled up to give you an example on how to use this column. I recommend the use of abbreviations, the meaning of every abbreviation is given at the bottom of every method column.

Topic

-The 'Topic' column gives you a brief description of the contents of every lesson. Feel free to add or drop some topics. Every topic is handled in the following boardscript pages.

Way

-The 'Way' column suggests a sample of teaching tools. Lesson plan 1 and 2 are already filled up . The explanation for the abbreviation used is given at the bottom of every way column. The boardscript pages of every lesson contain examples (EX) and hands-on (HO) exercises. The HO's should be carried out by the students during the lesson.

Remark

- The 'Remark' column provides you with space for additional information. (i.e.: Where can I find the transparency/ picture which I decided to use, or: What is the filename of the demo program which I already prepared)

This analog electronic course is designed for students with prerequisite knowledge in electronics. At least, they should know how to use Ohm's and Kirchhoff's law. Also some laboratory experience (how to measure voltage .current and resistance) is needed.
