There are many resources already available for learning electronics, then why another one?
Well, I’m putting together some material for learning electronics the fast way, directly jumping into calculations and practicals, skipping on theory that doesn’t help much in practical sense – for example knowing about electrons, where they exist, how they move, how much charge do they hold, etc are nice to know but they rarely help in designing and making electronic circuits. So, to learn such things, you will find plenty of other resources, but here, the focus will be on what’s useful practically. As an analogy, know about molecules of water is nice, but when you drink water, or when you design hydraulic systems, you have to normally forget about all that and focus on the properties that are of immediate practical use.
I have seen too many people struggling with basic mathematics, which then becomes a hindrance in their learning most of the scientific disciplines. As long as you follow all the sections in sequence, I assume very little knowledge of mathematics as a prerequisite.
In normal education, mathematics is taught separately, and most people keep wondering why they are learning this black magic that they have no idea how to use. But if learning mathematics is coupled with immediately learning how to use it, I believe people will gain a deeper understanding of mathematics and retain the knowledge for much longer.
This is what I assume you know:
- Decimal Numbers
- Positive and Negative Numbers
- How to Add, Subtract, Multiply, and Divide numbers
- How to operate a Calculator
- Mathematics for Electronics 1
- Conductors and Insulators
