At the beginning of the class, we learned what binary is. We learned how to translate binary to digital and vise versa. Using this as a foundation, we learned about AND gates, OR gates, NOT gates, and some combinations (NAND and NOR). Using that information, we began to learn what **logic circuits** were. We drew out circuits based on **truth tables**. We also learned **Boolean algebra**, and used that to help with logic circuits. To summarize all of that in one picture, here:

Later, in the lab rooms, we put our new knowledge to use.

We began with a college readiness circuit. This is what we did, from start to finish:

- We filled in a truth table.
- We wrote out the formulas using Boolean algebra.
- We drew out a circuit.
- We placed gates and an LED and connected wires on a breadboard.

The final product:

After that, we moved onto the designing of a circuit for a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. The steps of what we did:

- We filled in a truth table.
- We wrote out the formulas using Boolean algebra.
- We drew out individual diagrams for all of the possibilities that will add up to either red, yellow, or green. (Red = P1 wins, Yellow = Tie, Green = P2 wins)

We didn't have sufficient time to create the circuit itself, so we moved on to the next assignment, a vending machine circuit. We followed the same structure of steps:

- We filled in a truth table.
- We wrote out the formulas using Boolean algebra.

At that point, we could choose to either continue working on the vending machine or move on to the big project, a medicine delivery system. Our group decided to move onto the big project. We began designing, but the major procedures began on Day 3.
