​Logic gates and logic circuits

​Logic gates are the building blocks of electronic circuits that are used in computer components like memory and other controlling devices. Logic gates work on the principle that the binary digit 1 represents the ON or TRUE state and 0 represents the OFF or FALSE state. Logic gates are combined to form logic circuits that are responsible for a unique function, for example, controlling the various mechanisms of an oven such as temperature, timing, etc.

This Computer Science module introduces computers to your students, explaining:

  • ​Electrical switches
  • Understanding the working of logic gates
  • To apply the concept of logic gates to analyse and build logic circuits
  • To analyse the logic circuit of half adder
  • Using these logical operators used in programming
