Learners identify various therapeutic interaction strategies to be used when working with children and adolescents to enhance self-esteem, self-concept, self-worth, body image, and coping and communication skills.

Learners complete a crossword puzzle with terms that relate to common diseases of the nervous system and mental disorders. Immediate feedback is provided. Learners have the option to send an e-mail to their instructors notifying them that the learning object has been completed.

In this learning activity, learners will reflect on the meaning and impact of stereotypes in both personal relationships and work environments. Identifying behaviors, attitudes, and feelings associated with stereotypes are addressed in this activity.

Students are introduced to the non-inverting amplifier configuration. The formulas for closed loop gain and bandwidth are shown, and an example is given.

Op Amp Fundamentals: The Transresistance Amplifier

The current-to-voltage conversion of the transresistance amplifier is examined. The formulas for output voltage and impedance are defined and an example ties the concepts together.

The inverting amplifier configuration is presented. The closed loop voltage gain and the closed loop bandwidth formulas are explained, along with the concept of negative feedback.

Transistor Fundamentals: Collector Saturation and Collector-Emitter Cutoff

Students read about the concepts of saturation and cutoff. They view diagrams that illustrate the interaction of the load line and the family of curves.

Learners review the fundamental laws of algebra including the commutative law of addition, the commutative law of multiplication, the associative law of addition, the associative law of multiplication, and the distributive law. Examples are given.

Transistor Fundamentals: Junction Field Effect Transistor (JFET)

Students read about the common characteristics of the Junction Field Effect Transistor. They also explore the schematic symbols and the basic operation of the JFET.

Op Amp Fundamentals: The Transconductance Amplifier

Students read an introduction to the transconductance amplifier. They also view formulas for voltage-to-current conversion, closed-loop input, and output impedance. An example of how R1 controls the conversion factor is given.
