Resistor Simulation

This Resistor Simulation interactive also includes:

Many scholars struggle to picture electrons traveling in a circuit but understand water going through a pipe. The simulation compares circuits to water pipes. It walks pupils through four levels of questions, allowing them to switch between the circuitry view and the water pipe view.
