escription

Discovering Electronics with crocodile clips will help you to exploit the interactive learning potential of this superb circuit simulation program.

It is easy to learn how to use the program to build circuits. As a teacher, you can investigate useful circuits straight away. Students don't have the same background of knowledge and experience and need help in deciding which circuits to build and test. With this book, help is at hand.

In the first few chapters, electronic concepts are introduced through the medium of crocodile clips . The sequence of ideas is carefully controlled with the intention of building confidence in understanding and developing circuits.

Taking simulation as a useful starting point, the book explains how circuit subsystems can be rapidly built up and tested for proper function. This leads to productive work with real components and allows students to explore alternative solutions to design problems. Students and teachers will appreciate this straightforward approach to circuit design.

There are lots of hints giving practical applications for the circuits described, making the book an extremely effective resource for project work. Two Design Examples are developed in detail, with reasoned explanations for the circuits chosen, together with clear instructions for prototype board investigation. The Design Examples are supported by printed circuit board and stripboard designs.
