After high schoolers have learned about electromagnetic induction, they can solve these 10 practice problems. They calculate magnetic field strength, magnetic force, electromotive force, and output voltage. This is a choice option as a homework assignment for your general physics class.
In this magnetic forces and particle motion worksheet, students use the equation for the radius of a spiral to answer 3 questions about charged particle motion.
Learners are introduced to the attraction and repulsion of magnetic forces. In groups, they observe how the forces react with different materials and record their data. They develop their own conclusions about the poles of magnets and determine how this affects compasses.
Fourth graders investigate magnetism and the magnetic force.
Students observe bacteria that are able to orient themselves using the Earth's magnetic field.They comprehend the difference between anaerobic and aerobic organisms. Students can tell the difference of the shape of magnetic force field lines around a bar magnet and around the Earth itself.
Fifth graders investigate how thermal energy, light, sound, and magnetic forces are produced in a circuit. In this energy lesson, 5th graders will construct their own complete circuit game board in order to establish an understanding of what electricity produces. Students keep a record of their findings. 
Fifth graders investigate the behavior of magnetism using magnets. They discuss magnetic force, and conduct an experiment, testing how many paper plates can be stacked together before the force of the magnetic field no longer affects a paper clip underneath.
Fifth graders examine the role of magnetism and electricity. In groups, they are given different types of magnets and discover how the magnetic force differs for each one. They measure the amount of distance a paper clip moves toward the magnet and experiment with many magnets to see if the force on the object changes. To end the lesson, they examine their observations and discuss their results.
Students explore what a magnetic force is and what kinds of objects are attracted to a magnet. They use a magnet to sort objects taht are and are not attracted to a magnet. Students then explain why the objects were or were not attracted to the magnet.
In this physics worksheet, students answer 50 multiple choice questions on properties of and behavior of magnetic fields and forces.
Students discover magnetic forces. In this magnetic experiment lesson plan, students explore magnetism. Students conduct experiments and discover magnetic poles and magnetic strength.
For this magnetic forces and kinetic energy worksheet, students use the formula that relates the speed of an electron in a plasma cloud to its energy to find the speed of 6 different plasma cloud electrons. They answer 5 questions that include finding the circumference of the Earth, finding the time it takes a particle to travel around given plasma region and the time it would take a disturbance to travel across the United States.
Students describe the motion of a charged particle in a magnetic field.  In this magnetics instructional activity students calculate the force of a magnetic field. 
Students discover how magnetic force works. In this magnetic force lesson plan, students use vocabulary cards to review key terms and participate in an experiment with magnets. Students discover the biggest point of each object's force field.
Magnets are so attractive! Get ready for a great activity that helps children explore the many wonders of magnets. In small groups, they conduct a series of experiments that understand magnetization, magnetic polarity, and magnetic force. The culminating activity has them create floating angels out of paper clips, magnets, note cards, and string. Any of the activities would be great on their own or as an accent to an existing activity. 
Most of these questions are actually not numeric in nature as the title indicates, but they are pertinent to a high school physics curriculum covering magnetic fields. Young scientists must be adept at handling the right hand rule in order to answer them correctly as they are asked to describe the motion of particles through magnetic fields. Comprehensive in content, this resource would actually also serve well as a unit quiz.
In this magnets activity, students read about the properties of magnets, electromagnets, and magnetic fields. Then students complete 10 matching, 4 fill in the blank, and 8 word problems.
Students are introduced to the concepts of magnetism and electronics. As a class, they walk through the steps of the scientific method and define new vocabulary. In groups, they are given a bag of objects and they are to separate them into magnetic and non-magnetic. They also discover on a basic level how electronics operate.
Young scholars explore how compass and Gauss meter detect a magnetic field. In this physics lesson, students build their own Gauss meter and sensor based on given procedure. They cite real world applications of magnetism.
This set of seven activities attracts physical science stars to concepts concerning magnetism. Pupils play with a lodestone, magnets, needles, and iron filings to understand magnetic forces, fields, and applications. If you are new to teaching about magnets, this resource will perfectly prepare you for the task.
