Level 1 || Level 2 || Level 3
At Level 1, the student is able to:

1. analyze a given group of charges for repulsion and attraction.

  1. Lorentz Force - This Java applet demonstrates the Lorentz force, exerted on a current-carrying This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data conductor swing in the magnetic field of a horseshoe magnet

2. distinguish between charged particles related to repulsion and attraction.

  1. An index of static electricity animations from the Physics Classroom

3. create a simple electromagnet.

  1. Electromagnetic Oscillating Circuit - a simulation which deals with an electromagnetic oscillating circuit, consisting of a capacitor and an inductor This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
At Level 2, the student is able to:

1. describe the electric field that fills the space around a charged particle or group of charges.

3. solve problems of resistance using Ohm's law.

  1. Voltage Circuit Simulator - This exercise will help you determine the relationship between voltage (V), amperage (I) and resistance (R). This relationship is called Ohm's Law. This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Ohm’s Law - This applet shows a simple circuit containing one resistor. In addition there is a voltmeter (parallel to the resistor) and an ammeter (in series with the resistor) This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  3. Ohm's Law (includes Voltage law and Current law)

4. draw and explain series and parallel circuits.

  1. Simple AC Circuits - This Java applet shows a simple circuit consisting of an alternating voltage source and, depending on the selected radio button, a resistor (without inductivity), a capacitor or an ideal coil (without resistance). This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
