This section of the website documents new work being created and tested by Ian Symonds of EDUTRONIC. This is work in progress and uses some of the material in the Education Archive. Extra new material and new practical work is being created as part of a personal research project. Brief information is given below on the work, and links are included to view the material as it is being developed.
|The first stage was a "one to one" review and discussion of part of some
online material from the archive. It is an introduction to the basic
logic gates, AND, OR and NOT. Logic functions combining these basic
gates such as NOT AND (NAND) and NOT OR (NOR) are introduced. This is
revision, but introduces what is possibly a different approach to that
seen initially by the student.
The next stage introduced the use of a simple custom built battery powered logic tutor using 4000 series CMOS chips. The online material to support the practical work is called Trial1 and is in three sections. The first contains the background and the theory for the trial. The second section is support for the design and building of the circuit and the final section is support for testing the circuit.
