Welcome to Sorenson's Classes for the Spring Semester 2012.  Here you will find  a short lesson guide as to what we will be covering that day. On any occasion that Sorenson is Absent, your assignment will be found here and the sub will have any handouts, worksheets, etc. I will also attempt to post worksheets and such on the site as much as possible. I highly recommend you have a google account to access all of it.
 
You are REQUIRED to create your own website and share the link with Sorenson.  He will check for notes and other assignments and give grades from the website you create. 
 
Electronics I first day forms can be accessed at this link:  https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B_HPsEUfI2CZNTM1NjIyMzYtMzM3MC00ZDQxLTg2YTEtNjI5MmFiZjA4ZWEy

http://www.technologystudent.com/elec1/elecex.htm    GREAT LINK For all things electronics!
 
http://www.wisc-online.com/ListObjects.aspx   ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC SITE for simulations and practice problems with answers for studying Electronics. 
 
 soldering presentation. if you want to solder to win at contests, check out these pdfs.
 
 
 
 
After hearing some complaints about having to scroll down for two weeks to get to the daily lesson plan, I have moved it to this panel.  Of course you will still have to scroll down forever but with a bigger page, it will be quicker.  Thanks for the feedback parents and students. 
 
 
Revision 2, LOL.  Okay, so I discovered how easily I can create new pages and simply link them to the navigation widget at the top left of the screen. From now on, the daily assignments/plans will appear there in chronological order.  Keep in mind this "Old dog" is learning new tricks each day regarding Google Sites.
