I don't think I really understand the assignment this week. I think it is supposed to make an LED bulb blink on the breadboard. I made the first circuit in the book I found and it looked like the first two pictures shown. When I press the switch, the light comes on.
I was also able to get the built in LED to flash on the Arduino using the code. I could change the delay so that the built in LED blinked at different rates. Those are the videos.
Unfortunately, the circuit that first in my book doesn't have any wires in port 13 and that's where things went off the rails for me. I can't move things if they aren't there. I don't have instructions that tell the LED light on the breadboard to blink.
I felt like I didn't really understand any of the play parts because I had different instructions. I can appreciate being able to play around, but I've learned that in the case of educational technology, that usually means frustration. I wish I'd have known that they wouldn't all have the same instructions instead of buying a kit with all the extra pieces.
I don't know how to draw an electronic diagram. There are some schematic diagrams in the book I have, but they didn't make any sense to me. If there hadn't been a real picture, I wouldn't have been able to make any circuit.
I'm hoping I understand more next week. If I were a student I would've given up, honestly. I actually just ordered another kit so that I could get the right book, because I don't have time to be lost.
