5I. demonstrates the ability to use instruments or to explain functions of the technologies used to study matter and energy.
PowerPoint lesson III in the "Electricity and Magnetism" Unit VI - introductory physics. This lesson identifies and describes series and parallel circuits; demonstrates how to calculate electric power and energy use, and discusses electrical safety devices and why they are important.
PowerPoint lessons contain many graphics and links to short videos to further student understanding.
PowerPoint slides also contain notes for the instructor based on students most "frequently asked questions" or FAQ's to help clarify the subject.
A suggested class activity is included at the end of each lesson and a 20-question interactive quiz/review at kahoot.it is also included as a link in the last slide.
A separate student note guide is also available for this lesson.
