Mr. T.A. Lorah
Room G 17 & S 102
The electricity/electronics course is a basic theory and “hands-on” program that will meet the needs of a student planning on a post high school tech program. Experimentation and demonstrations will be used to ensure thorough understanding of electrical principles. Students will learn AC and DC circuits, control systems, power distribution, capacitance, inductance and the proper use of testing equipment.
1 Discuss the nature of matter
2 Identify series, parallel, and combination circuits.
3 Apply Ohm’s law to calculate values.
4 Demonstrate the proper use of precision measuring equipment and instruments.
5 Interpret electrical schematics.
6 Discuss work, power, horsepower, watts, and watt-hours.
7 Apply circuit principles to find unknown values.
8 Relate magnetism and its relationship with electricity.
9 Discuss XFMR theories.
10 Name and explain different types of motors and their applications.
11 Apply capacitance theories to AC and DC circuits
12 Demonstrate safe working habits and practices associated with high voltage.
13 Communicate using terms and concepts relative to the electrical field
Fundamentals 15 days
Basic Circuits 25 days
Motors, Generators &
Power Distribution 25 days
Advanced Electronics 25 days

-You should have a 1” three ring binder for this class. There will be opportunities for the notebook to be used as a referance during quizzes and tests.
-We will engage in a topic appropriate reading exercises utilizing the text book along with other sources.
-All grades are updated daily. You and your parents are encouraged to check them frequently.-The electricity class will be “heavy” with specific vocabulary.
It is the student's responsibility to contact the teacher(s) on the day he/she returns from the absence to make arrangements to make up any missed assignments and/or assessments.
*All missed assignments and/or assessments must be made up within three school days from the day the student returns from the absence.MetaltechTechnology Education/Practical ArtsMr. T. A. LorahRoom G17Course DescriptionMetaltechThe metaltech course will explore and utilize current construction methods with metal being the common raw material. Students will design, problem-solve, and analyze the manufacturing process by constructing personal and group projects. This is an applied, interactive course that introduces students to basic tools, measuring devices, machines, materials, and the processes of the metal industry.Objectives1 Apply math, science, and problem-solving methods in utilizing technology to process and manipulate metal.2 Relate the processing of metal and metal based materials to the technological systems model ( input, process, output, feedback, impacts)3 Apply math, science, and problem-solving methods in utilizing technology to process and manipulate metal.4 Demonstrate the ability to accuractly use measuring devices and applications to production machines.5 Communicate using vocabulary and concepts relative to metallic materials, processes and production.6 Demonstrate the ability to safely and accurately use common tools and machines .Areas of Concentration- machining (lathe, milling machine, power saws, drill press)- sheetmetal- foundry- welding- hand toolsMisc.-You should have a 1" three ring binder for this class. This will be your text and many activities will require referencing it.- We will engage in a topic appropriate reading exercise a minimum of one time per week.- All grades are updated daily. Please check skyward/schoology frequently.- This class works in an "open" environment. students must act in a mature and responsible manner at all times.Missed WorkIt is the students responsibility to contact the teacher(s) on the day he/she returns from the absence to make arrangements to make up any missing assignments and or assessments*All missed assignments and or assessments must be made up within three school days from the student returns from the absence.
