Carolina® Ohm's Law and Kirchhoff's Rules Kit
Students establish relationships between voltage, current, and resistance by building multiple circuits and collecting data to understand Ohm's law. Circuit diagram mats provide a visual step-by-step guide to building series and parallel circuits.
Using breadboards and multimeters, students explore the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance by building circuits and analyzing them. Circuit diagram mats provide a visual step-by-step guide on how to build series and parallel circuits.
Collecting data on multiple circuits, students generate a mathematical model of Ohm's law.
Kit provides materials for 15 students, including a teacher's manual, student guide, and free 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction for the Next Generation Science Standards*. Activities build toward the following NGSS Performance Expectations: HS-PS3-1, HS-PS3-2, and HS-PS3-3. This kit is designed to integrate into a larger unit of lessons addressing wave mechanics, electricity, magnetism, and electromagnetism.
