COURSE OUTLINE AUT 110 Course Number 3 Credits Introduction to Automotive Electronics Course Title 3 1 Hours lecture laboratory other specify Catalog description An introduction to voltage current and resistance series and parallel circuits batteries and electronic components Wiring schematics wire repair and circuit troubleshooting are also covered For automotive students Prerequisites None Corequisites MAT 037 or Equivalent Proficiency AUT 111 Required texts other materials Halderman James D Automotive Electricity and Electronics rd 3 Edition Pearson Education Publishing 2011 Last revised August 2011 Course coordinator Fred Bassini ext 3776 bassinif mccc edu Information resources Describe the primary information resources that support the course including books videos journals electronic databases websites etc Chrysler Dealer Connect Web site Chrysler Academy Training Reference Books Service Manuals On line and CD Disc Self Study Courses and the ALLDATA Online Service Information Database Other learning resources Describe any other student learning resources that are specific to this course including any special tutoring or study group support learning system software etc Course goals List the most important 5 8 overall student learning goals for your course Learning goals or competencies are statements that describe the specific measurable knowledge skills and or values that the student is expected to demonstrate perform or exhibit after completion of the course Learning goals should focus on what the students will learn rather than what the instructor will teach and should include verbs explain demonstrate identify that accurately reflect lower order and higher order learning goals 1 Using the computers in the automotive facility the student will be able to obtain service repair information and procedures from the appropriate online service information database web site 2 Using the vehicle service manuals supplied by the program the student will be able to research service procedures to repair shop vehicles 23 Given a schematic of a series circuit consisting of known voltage and resistance values the student will be able to calculate the circuit voltage current and resistance of all components in the circuit 4 Given a schematic of a parallel circuit consisting of known voltage and resistance values the student will be able to calculate the circuit voltage current and resistance of all components in the circuit 5 The student will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the proper use of a digital multimeter by successfully measuring voltage current resistance and voltage drop on sample test circuits 6 The student will be able to demonstrate the proper procedure for repairing a damaged wire by soldering two jumper wires that can be used for electrical troubleshooting 7 Given a live vehicle with an electrical problem the student will be able to successfully diagnose the problem using both electrical test devices and wiring diagram manuals Course specific General Education goals and objectives To an extent consistent with its primary purposes each course in every program is expected to reflect the college s commitment to general education as affirmed in the attached list of General Education Goals and Objectives A General Education Course is one whose primary purposes and overall design coincide strongly with one or more of the approved general education goals and objectives For any approved or proposed General Education Course the General Education Goals and Objectives form should be completed and attached to the course outline This course is not designed to be a General Education offering General Education Core Competencies 1 Students will read write and listen actively critically and reflectively 2 Students will write and speak clearly and effectively in formal American English 3 Students will draw logical conclusions by applying a variety of mathematical problem solving strategies 4 Students will be able to communicate mathematical concepts effectively Students will integrate scientific principles and scientific discovery and will critically investigate the impact of science and scientific discovery on our understanding of the natural universe 5 Students will demonstrate proficiency with electronic communications as appropriate to their program 6 Students will demonstrate a working knowledge of a major domain of technological application 7 Students will demonstrate the ability to use a particular technology or group of technologies to analyze or solve problems in general and within their academic discipline Units of study in detail List the units of study according to the general topics or themes by which the course is organized Units of study are not chapter titles but should be seen as independent of the selected textbook For each unit identify specific learning objectives These unit learning objectives should stem from the overall course objectives and applicable General Education objectives Unit learning objectives should state in terms that can serve as the frame of reference for ongoing assessment of both student achievement and of the course s effectiveness what successful students will be able to demonstrate perform or exhibit at the end of the unit 3Unit I INTRODUCTION Learning Objectives 1 The student will be able to calculate the units of measure of Mega Kilo Milli and Micro and convert from one to the other 2 Using Ohm s Law the student will be able to explain the relationship of voltage and resistance and their effect on circuit current flow A Fundamentals 1 Current Voltage Resistance 2 Conductor Semi conductor Insulator B Reading the Digital Multimeter 1 Units of Measure a Mega Kilo Milli Micro b Decimal Placement 2 Meter Scales C Interpreting Resistor Values 1 Color Bands D Electron Theory of Electron Flow 1 Ohm s Law 2 Relationship of Voltage Current and Resistance Unit II SERIES CIRCUITS Learning Objectives 1 The student will be able to apply the rules for a series circuit to explain its operation 2 Using the proper electrical components the student will construct a working electrical circuit to be used for class activities 3 On a live vehicle the student will be able to perform a Starter Motor Voltage Drop test to determine starter circuit condition A Circuit Rules 1 Voltage 2 Current 3 Resistance B Applying Ohm s Law to Calculate Values 1 Sample Problems C Using the Test Circuit Board D Completing and Testing Sample Circuits Homework Series Circuit
