Circuit #6 Photo Resistor Notes
Goal : Use a photo resistor (light sensor) to control the brightness of an LED. PWM - Pulse Width Modulation. The Arduino uses PWM to fake an output analog voltage. It does this by blinking a pin on and off as fast as 1000 times per second. PWM goes one ste...

Circuit #4 Multiple LEDs
Goal: Make eight LEDs dance. Dance LEDs, dance! Array - An array lets you store a group of variables and refer to them by their position, or "index." ie. int ledPins[ ] = {2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}; 2 = index 0, 9 = index 7 random(#) - Generates a random number betw...
