CPU, ALU, RAM, GPU, Bus...

How does a computer take code and do stuff or display stuff?


  • Typing Club will improve your speed and accuracy!

  • Course Calendar

  • Everyone should be complete Unit 0 Lessons 0.1 to 0.5.

    • Those lessons are locking as of tomorrow so get caught up!

  • From last class:

    • Computers contain circuits that can do binary mathematics and make decisions

    • These circuits utilize logic gates made of transistors (thank you, engineers!)

      • For those interested - here is a site showing how the gates are made with transistors

    • We completed some tasks using logic.ly to create circuits that mimic certain logical situations. Those tasks should be submitted by now. If not - you must submit them by tonight at the latest.


  • Reminder - please ignore the Hapara Workspace "Emergency Lesson Plans - Mr. Brash ICS2O"
