Alan Smith Arduino Curriculum

An introduction to Arduino (PDF), microcontrollers and electrical circuits by Alan Smith.

This document is intended to get the beginner started with Arduino by creating projects. It goes a little more in depth than most introductions by branching out to things like LCD screens, tilt sensors and joystick input after covering the basics. Concepts that will be covered include:

  • Software setup
  • Input and Output
  • Analog and digital sensors
  • Sound
  • LCD screens, tilt sensors and josticks
  • Making your own project

There is no kit associated with this document but there is a list of components so you can decide which projects and activities to pursue.
