ELECTRONICS 1-2 Syllabus for 2015-2016
Welcome to Electronics 1-2! This year long class will count for your graduation credits as math, non -lab science, or
CTE credit. You will spend class time in self-paced labs and projects as well as online curricula, traditional
classroom lectures and demonstrations. You will learn basic electronic direct current (DC) theory that includes
resistance, voltage, current, and power, lab safety, soldering techniques, and build several electronic projects. The
goal for this course is to prepare you to achieve the International Society of Ce rtified Electronic Technicians
(ISCET) DC Electronics Certification. School Internet policy is strictly enforced!
WA State Learning Standards: Common Core English Language Arts, Mathematics and 21st Century skills:
We will be incorporating the WA State Common Core English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Standards and
the 21 st Century Employability Skills. Common Core is a real-world approach to learning and teaching that
describe/define the knowledge and skills in the areas of English language arts and mathematics that students will need
throughout their K-12 education careers so they graduate high school able to succeed in careers and college, whatever their
choice of college or career. The standards require a practical, real-life application of knowledge that prepares Washington
students for success in college, work and life. 21 st Century skills and/or Employability skills are the non-technical skills
and knowledge necessary for effective participation in the workforce. They can include skills such as commitment to
quality, work habits, communication, citizenship, and attendance/punctuality. They are also sometimes referred to as
generic skills and soft skills. Standards are obtained from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI)
Lab fees for each semester are $40.00 and cover the cost of the electronic kits. Financial hardship will not prevent
a student from being able to participate (please come and talk to me as soon as possible).
This is a "TechPrep" course! This course qualifies for college credit with local community or technical colleges in
the area. The student must pass the class with a B or better. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact
My room has video surveillance cameras installed in an effort to deter theft. The room is monitored twenty four
hours, seven days a week throughout the school year.

Be present, be on time, and be ready to work. A student is considered tardy if he/she arrives up to 10 minutes late. If
the student is more than 10 minutes late, they will be marked as an un-excused absence. More than twelve absences
(excused or un-excused) may result in a non-passing grade. If a student's absence is un-excused the student does not
have the right to make up missed work.
The ARHS dress code is observed. All electronic devises (portable CD players, etc.) are prohibited during lectures
and labs. Cell phones are not allowed during classroom periods. Repeated requests to put them away will result in
