Learners follow procedures for measuring resistance using an analog ohmmeter. They examine the use of the Function Switch and the Range Switch and practice reading a non-linear scale. A brief quiz completes the activity.

Students examine the procedure to measure current with an analog ammeter. The use of Function and Range switches is explored along with reading the needle position on the meter scale. A brief quiz completes the activity.

Students follow the procedure to measure voltage with an analog voltmeter. They examine the use of the Function Switch and the Range Switch. A brief quiz completes the activity.

Learners compare the experience of driving an auto to the circuit responses of RL (resistance/inductance) circuits and RC (resistance/capacitance) circuits. Acceleration, position, speed, and torque are graphed.

In this animated activity, learners examine how an electronic converter changes digital signals to analog signals. Sections of a synthesizer are identified, and the operation of a D/A converter is demonstrated.

Learners read an analogy comparing mechanical work (in this case, sliding a weight) to that of electrical power. The relationship of work, apparent work, and power factor is developed.

How Adding Parallel Branches Decreases Total Resistance

In this animated object, learners follow an analogy of water flowing through pipes and valves to see how resistance decreases in a parallel circuit as branches are added.

In this learning activity you'll review the operation of a NOR gate by using a truth table, a Boolean Algebra equation, a switch analogy, and a written statement.

In this learning activity you'll explore the operation of a NAND gate using a truth table, a Boolean Algebra equation, a switch analogy, and a written statement.

How Adding Parallel Branches Increases Total Current

In this animated object, learners follow an analogy of water flowing through pipes and valves to see how current increases in a parallel circuit as branches are added.

In this learning activity you'll describe the operation of a logic inverter using a truth table, a Boolean Algebra equation, a switch analogy, and a written statement.
