Computer Science - Logic Gates

Author: Paul Walton
Description:

To introduce boolean operators

To make students aware of what logic gates are

In this tutorial the students will learn about the different logic gates.  They will understand what a logic gate is and understand the differences between the operators.  the start point will be to look at the minecraft video.  After they have looked at the video before the lesson, they can arrive at the lesson and then start the task looking at the different logic gates.

They can then complete the tasks and research the key words

After this lesson, you should be able to:

·         Identify the basic gates

·         Describe the behavior of each

·         Combine gates
