This solution provides a broad-based introduction to electronics and provides substantial syllabus coverage of the relevant BTEC First Award (Unit 7). It provides a series of practical investigations that allow students to unify theoretical work with practical skills - from bulbs in series to radio circuits. Curriculum, including experiments and teacher's notes, is available from our resources page.
Topics students can study include:
- LDRs and thermistors
- Diodes and their function
- Combinational logic
- Transistors as a switch / amplifier
- Operational amplifiers
- Simple radio circuits
