Can You Resist This?

This Can You Resist This? lesson plan also includes:

Some things are hard to resist. Small collaborative groups build circuits and calculate the voltage using Ohm's Law. Budding engineers explore the connection between the voltage across different resistors and linear functions with graphing exercises.

Instructional Ideas

  • Use the hand-on activity when graphing linear functions
  • Pair with science and math teachers to teach the concept together
Classroom Considerations

  • Requires materials to create the circuit
  • Learners should have knowledge of linear functions
Pros

  • Used with a variety of levels based upon focus
  • Provides an application of linear functions
Cons

  • The materials needed can be expensive
  • Use of the breadboard may be difficult for some
