## TEJ3M/4M – Oct 2, 2014

I began the class today by taking up the answers to the worksheet the students were working on yesterday titled I took up the answers with the students on the digital projector (I will post a copy of the answers below).  After going over the answers, I then had my grade 12’s (TEJ4M) help me sort some of the hands on materials we have in the class so that we can start some of the hands on work in class (the grade 12’s are more familiar with the components they used last year so they did a great job today helping me sort).  While the grade 12’s were doing this task, I did a lesson with my grade 11’s (TEJ3M) on the white board.  The lesson was titled “Circuits: Basic Logic Gates”.  I went over 6 basic logic gates with the students and how they are used.  After going over the basic properties of these logic gates, I then did 1 example before giving the students a worksheet to work on.  I told the students we would take up this worksheet at the start of class tomorrow but I will also post the answers below as well.  Before the students left class today, I also gave them a handout which has conversions for ASCII, binary, decimal, octal and hex for them to keep as a reference.  This handout was titled “ASCII Conversion Chart”.

Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.
