Class practical: adding a shunt in parallel with a galvanometer converts it to an ammeter with a higher range. This is a trial...
Class experiment: circuit diagrams allow students to make simple records. They also allow teachers to give students summaries...
Class experiment: many interesting circuits can be set up with switches in series and in parallel with components.
Class experiment: the fact that current is the same all round a series circuit may have been discovered when using ammeters...
Class practical: an extra wire can shed light on the problem.
Demonstration: an introduction to what voltmeters measure and how they are connected in circuits.
Challenge your students to think about making conducting circuits in seasonal/non-seasonal shapes, using circuit components.
This activity allows students to investigate up to three bulbs without them having to rebuild their circuit. You can use it to...
This class activity allows students to investigate circuits with up to three bulbs without having to take their circuit apart...
