Learners explain resistors. In this electrical engineering lesson, student investigate how resistors affect currents in a series and in a parallel circuit. Students will watch a clip from "Minds of Their Own," and then use learner.org to figure out how many different ways they can connect two light bulbs and a battery.
A hands-on inquiry and nine problems to solve make up this electric current assignment. Physical science engineers test four different resistors to record measurements and determine whether or not each is ohmic. They use the same objects to build a circuit. Then they analyze the schematic of another circuit. Use this as a well-rounded test to determine lab skills and problem solving ability.
Wow! Here is a coherent and cleverly designed tool for teaching physical scientists about electric circuits. Animations help learners to visualize what is happening within the parts of a circuit. Components are displayed to teach them how to diagram a circuit. The information covers the mechanics of series and parallel circuits as well as the measurement of voltage. The presentation concludes by having the class copy two circuits and fill in missing voltage readings.
When your introductory physical science class is engulfed in a unit on electricity, this PowerPoint can support you through several lectures. It is a visually appealing and informative inspection of electric charge, static and current electricity, voltage, batteries, resistance, conductors, Ohm's law, and more. After thoroughly surveying electricity, viewers will then see how it relates to magnetism and learn about practical uses of electromagnetism. A worthwhile resource that includes slides to check for understanding!
This wave and electromagnetism assignment is so thorough, it could be used as a unit exam. The first section of it covers wave concepts. The next section addresses static electricity. There is a section that deals with electric circuits. Finally, the worksheet finishes off with magnetism, specifically electromagnetic induction. Though many of the questions require problem solving and computation, the answers are presented as multiple choice. Neat diagrams are included in many of the questions.
Twenty-one slides cover all aspects of electricity; from electric charge, to protons, lightning, currents, the calculations for wire resistance, circuits, household devices, and fluorescence. The amount of detail and the range of topics means this Powerpoint is a good review tool for a full unit.
