Chapter 01 - Electronics with Arduino

Be sure to read the course syllabus. It includes such important details as the materials fee (for DCHS students) and the grading policy. There is no textbook for this course, only this site.

In this course I will expect you to have watched all videos and read all text provided. The lessons I've put together will help you build the skills you need to do some pretty cool stuff. You should also take your own notes while progressing through the units. This is true even though the text and videos will always be there for you to refer back to. When you summarize something in your own notes you have to think about it differently then when you read about it. This makes it easier to remember it later with out having to refer back to the original source.
