Test various currents, voltages
Explore different components
Don't worry about frying a component if it is cheap (e.g. a diode)
Take great notes, pictures, write down your insights, Take lots of notes. This isn't going to be get result and write "I got result..." you will need to write down what you did, how you did it, and what you learned.
I (Steve) feel like I didn't understand a lot of this until I played around with it for several hours. So, that's the point of the lab session
How do you do this? Not exactly sure, figure it out from git bash. Maybe "pull?" Make sure you're in the right local directory before you try to pull the new stuff down.
Measure voltages, use a multimeter to measure currents, try out different resistors, etc.
This is a great lab to merge theory and experiment so go back to your basic circuit equations and plug in some numbers and test out your results.
SOOO: When doing the full-wave bridge, you cannot use the oscilloscope to measure the waveform across the 1-Kohm resistor, because you will draw huge current.
