Measuring Current and Voltage

Learning Intention:
Students will understand that current is measured in amps using and ammeter and voltage is measured in volts using a voltmeter. They will understand that when a circuit is connected in series:
* voltages add up for components
* currents are the same through all components
When a circuit is connected in parallel:
* voltages are the same across all components
* currents add up for components

Success Criteria:
You will be able to connect a simple circuit with a power source and globes in series and in parallel, and measure the current and voltage at different points on the circuit. You will complete the measurements of current and voltage that show the differences between series and parallel circuits.

1. i got 10/10 on the quiz

2. it was a good game it showed me what carries a electtrical current and what didnt… π

3. I scored 10 out of 10 on the circuits and conductors quiz. It was fun π

4. I enjoyed playing on the quiz and I got 7/10.

5. It was good and clearly explained what each circuit was, showed me what cuts the circuit off and what keeps it going.

6. i got 10 out of ten on the quiz π

7. the website was great and how it showed what was a conductor and what was an insulator

8. i got 10 out of 10 on the quiz and i found easy π
