Sample Student Learning Outcomes for 72A:
1. Draw, recognize and analyze combinational logic circuits using system presentation tools including logic equations, truth tables, and logic diagrams.
2. Analyze sample sequential circuits including multivibrators, counters and registers.
3. Design synchronous sequential systems and validate the results using transition tables and timing diagrams.
Sample Student Learning Outcomes for 72B:
1. Build, and analyze combinational logic circuits using system presentation tools including logic equations, truth tables, and logic diagrams. Construct the circuit and measure logic levels.
2. Analyze a sample sequential circuit counter and/or register.  Build and verify operation.
3. Design synchronous sequential systems and validate the results using transition tables and timing diagrams.
______________________________________________
1.    If you stop attending after the third week, it is your responsibility to drop the class to avoid a failing grade.   No incomplete grades are given.  You must take the final exam at the time and day scheduled.  Students missing more than 3 classes may be excluded by the instructor.
 
2.    A quiz may be given once a week covering both lecture and lab material, so please prepare accordingly.

3.    NO MAKEUP QUIZZES.  Missed quizzes count as zero.

4.    The lab grade is the same as the lecture grade.  All labs must be completed and lab work signed by the instructor for credit.  Each student will build his/her own circuits.   All lab work must be done in the scheduled lab during the published lab hours for Electronics 72B.

4.    Grading:  Weekly quizzes: 75%   Final exam: 25% .  Subtract 2% from final average for each missing homework assignment.  Assignments are due at the beginning of the lecture period - late work is not accepted.  Homework must be 70% correct for credit.  Incomplete grades are not given.   

6.    Keep all quizzes and handout materials.  Please read the attached course outline for a list of topics.  Many textbooks are available that cover the basics of Digital Electronics so be aware that finding supplemental material in libraries, book stores, or the internet may be helpful to you.

7.    Please turn off all phones and pagers during lecture.    During lecture classes, please sit in the chairs and not at the lab tables.  Do not enter the stockroom/office area unless invited by a staff member.

8.    Please consult the Pierce College Electronics Department web site for catalog descriptions, course outlines, copies of syllabi and other important information.

ENJOY THE CLASS!
