Residential Wiring

The module begins with the fundamental theories of electricity and electronics. These concepts include current, voltage, resistance, Ohm’s law, and magnetism. Students also learn how to safely perform tasks with electronic circuitry. As students progress through the module, they acquire more advanced knowledge and skills. For example, they learn to perform calculations and use these values to predict the performance of electrical circuits. They also develop the ability to troubleshoot and repair various faults in electrical and electronic systems.

Other Information:

• These modules are for students who are having a first learning experience with electricity and electronics.
• It offers numerous analogies, which relate basic principles, concepts and terms to everyday life experiences.
• These modules feature an Exploratory Electronics Laboratory Workstation with electronics parts, teacher manuals, reproducible student workbooks, and teaching software to guide instruction of the learning module.
• A new addition to this module is the Residential Wiring trainer that enforces technical skills that students can use in for practical life lesson and provides exploration in electronics careers. Several hands-on activities reinforce electrical systems and allow students to realize their interest and potential to succeed in the field.
• The Residential Electrical Wiring trainer is used to introduce electrical wiring techniques. It demonstrates the operation of a service panel and how it is used to distribute power and protect various circuits. Wiring of the most common electrical fixtures is demonstrated as well as circuit basics, service panels, circuit breakers and fuses, grounding, cables and wires and safety.
• Software must be loaded onto a school’s local computer or laptops.
