Put your students’ understanding of mixed circuits to the test with this challenging activity that uses Ohm’s Law and Kirchhoff’s Laws for series and parallel circuits.
This is part of my cost-saving, amazing Physics Bundle!
This is a one-question worksheet that has students analyze a complex circuit in order to determine the missing values for voltage, current and resistance. They will need to use Kirchhoff’s Laws as well as Ohm’s Law to solve the problem properly. Students put their answers on the handout (which makes it easy to mark for you) while writing out their steps on a separate piece of paper or in their notebooks.
This is great to quickly evaluate the students’ ability to simplify complex circuits and use the equations correctly in a Physics course. It is also a wonderful challenge for students learning Electricity in a general Science course (bonus marks, pushing students who are ahead of the content).
What’s included in the zipped folder?
This resource consists of 2 files: an editable PowerPoint .pptx file and a .pdf file. They each contain:
• 1-page student handout
• 1-page teacher handout with the answers in the table
• 1-page written solutions to the problem
Check out the Preview
above for a closer look!
Print it as-is from the .pdf file or make any tweaks for your class using the editable .pptx file.
