This handout is designed to accompany the Exploriments App on Simple Electrical Circuits in Series, Parallel and Combination. With access to this app your students will experience an engaging lesson for understanding and designing circuit arrangements such as series, parallel and combination using batteries, wires, bulbs and a variety of fun electrical toys. It is great for teachers, parents and tutors who want to explain the workings of electrical circuits, and for students who want to explore on their own. Teachers can use the app to demo an idea, and then guide students through hands on, self-study exercises.
You can move things around, choose devices and connect circuits using switches and wires, the way you want to. Students get the best of both worlds – the freedom to make your own circuits as well as the comfort of using the built-in circuits within the app
This resource will guide your students through each one of the learning circuits while asking them to answer questions, create drawings and input data from the activities. They will then be asked to build their own circuits and draw them on this handout.
