Coulomb's Law: Some Practice with Proportions
In this Coulomb's Law instructional activity, students solve 10 problems given two charges and the distance between them. Students find the electrostatic force between the charges and they find the forces as the distance between the charges and the size of the charges changes.

Types of Circuits and Ohm's Law
In this circuits an Ohm's Law learning exercise, high schoolers read about the differences between series and parallel circuits. They are given Ohm's Law and the definitions of current, voltage and resistance. Students match variables with their quantities, they label circuits, they identify types of circuits, they use Ohm's Law to solve for current and voltage and they experiment in the lab with 4 circuits.

Balancing Chemical Equations
Ninth graders explain how atoms and molecules form different substances during chemical reactions and how these processes require losing, gaining or sharing electrons. They correctly write chemical formulas and show how a balanced chemical equation must have the same number and types of atoms on each side of the arrow.
