IMPORTANT: When you are done with the Oscilloscope please return it to it's proper box, packaged as you found it and put it away. Likewise for the PAD-234 Trainer Kits. Make sure you put all components back in the proper locations.

We will not construct any circuits this first week. For week #2 (Week of 9/8-9/12) you will construct the 555 timer circuit presented in the YouTube videos shown on the Protoboards link.
