Unit 11: Electricity and Magnetism – Electric Circuits

It’s time to put down the smart phone and learn how it works! The best part of electric circuits, IMO, is that doing circuit work is really like playing a great puzzle game…This stuff is so much fun!


Full teacher notes available by request via email to Michelle.Burgess@avonlakecityschools.org
from an official educational institution email address.

Video 1: Current, Resistance, and Ohm’s Law

Video 2: Basic Circuit Geometry parts 1 & 2

OK, disclaimer: I got really tired (read: goofy) doing part 2. I’d already been teaching for thirteen hours. You have been warned.

Video 3: Compound Circuits


Video 4: Real vs. Ideal Batteries, Voltmeters, Ammeters, and an Ugly Problem


Video 5: Dear Lord, they put capacitors in circuits, too???
NOTE: The answer keys to the sample problems at the end of the video are from a different practice sheet. I will update the video soon, but in the meantime please be aware that the answers are not correct. Thank you for your patience.
