PowerPoint and Guided Notes I use to introduce Electric Current, Voltage, and Resistance. There is also a short activity built into the lesson using a PhET simulation to reinforce the concepts. PowerPoint is 17 slides and includes an activator/bell ringer question and daily objectives. Guided notes are 3 pages and a full answer key is included.
MA State Frameworks:
5.1 Recognize that an electric charge tends to be static on insulators and can move on and in conductors. Explain that energy can produce a separation of charges.
5.2 Develop qualitative and quantitative understandings of current, voltage, resistance, and the connections among them (Ohm’s law).
5.3 Analyze simple arrangements of electrical components in both series and parallel circuits. Recognize symbols and understand the functions of common circuit elements (battery, connecting wire, switch, fuse, resistance) in a schematic diagram.
5.5 Explain how electric current is a flow of charge caused by a potential difference (voltage), and how power is equal to current multiplied by voltage.
