Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Circuits: From Static to Moving Charges - Section 4: Exploration of Simple Circuits via Simulation


There are a tremendous number of excellent simulators on the web for all kinds of Physics lessons. in the video below, I take a look at one that I've been using for a few years and suggest ways of using it in the classroom.

Circuits: From Static to Moving Charges

Unit 3: Electricity and Energy Transfer
Lesson 1 of 13

Objective: Students will begin to develop their intuition about the ways that charges move in electric circuits.

Big Idea: As charges move in a circuit, energy can be delivered to elements of the circuit.
