**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.

Simulate simple circuits at this BBC interactive site: Circuits and Conductors. and Changing Circuits. Try Learning Circuits at FlashMain. You can find out more information about series and parallel circuits at the Electronics Club. “All About Circuits” explains how voltage, current and resistance relate to each other. Gary Fallidou has produced some excellent videos demonstrating different simple circuits. Choose one video and let me know what you learnt in the comments secion below. You can download Crocodile Clips free for student use at home to learn more about electronic circuits. This site has a whole lot more links to games and activities to help you learm more about simple circuits.

i did the quiz and got 10 out of 10

i got 10/10 on the quiz

it was a good game it showed me what carries a electtrical current and what didnt… π

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

it was a good game it explained what lights up and what doesnt π

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

I got 10/10 on the quiz! π

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

i got 10 out of ten on the quiz π

10/10 on the quiz π

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

i got 10 out of 10 on the quiz and i found easy π

I got 9/10 for the quiz and i didn’t learn nothing! π
