This shockwave applet allows the user to build DC circuits and it then simulates how the circuit works. The user can place batteries, light bulbs, wires, switches, ammeters, and voltmeters in the circuit. The applet gives the current and voltage being read by the meters, and lights up the light bulb if appropriate. The simulation also has preset circuits that are designed to demonstrate certain principles, such as Ohm's Law or how series circuits work. (less)

This page contains a series of three activities developed specifically to accompany the PhET DC Circuit Construction Kit. The lessons explore basic properties of electric circuits and resistors in series and parallel circuits. The activities may be performed using only the PhET virtual circuit kit or in combination with a hands-on circuit lab. Students will build virtual circuits from schematic drawings, use a multimeter to take readings, and analyze the difference between real and simulated circuits. Materials include lesson plans, detailed student guides, and a Circuit Challenge worksheet. Also included are "clicker questions", designed to elicit prior understanding. This resource is part of a large collection of simulations freely available from the Physics Education Technology group at the University of Colorado. (less)

This page contains a series of problems on the topic of electricity developed for use with The Physics Suite, an activity-based learning project. Each problem was designed to help build qualitative understanding of physics and was built around student acquisition of knowledge as observed in recent studies. The problems vary in format and include estimation, context-based reasoning, multiple choice, short answer, qualitative questions, and essay questions. Topics covered include electric fields, resistors, capacitors, parallel and series combinations, Coulomb's Law, Kirchoff's rules, dipoles, and calculating capacitance. This item is part of a larger collection of problems, in-class questions, and interactive resources developed by the University of Maryland Physics Education Research Group. (less)

Students learn how engineers design devices that use water to generate electricity by building model water turbines and measuring the resulting current produced in a motor. Students work through the engineering design process to build the turbines, analyze the performance of their turbines and make calculations to determine the most suitable locations to build dams.

Students learn how engineers harness the energy of the wind to produce power by following the engineering design process as they prototype two types of wind turbines and test to see which works best. Students also learn how engineers decide where to place a wind turbine, and the advantages and disadvantages to using wind power compared to other non-renewable energy sources. (less)
