Keeping with our electricity theme, here are some problems to work on dealing with circuits and Ohm's Law

Ohm's Law worksheet..... download to your google drive and fill it out

Here is a simulator for building Parallel Circuits and Series Circuits using the PHET Colorado University lab PhET Circuit Lab Sheet

Here's a circuit building lab using a breadboard - Circuit Building , where you can physically build a circuit and explore some questions that may occur to you and your team.

In the front of the class, you will find some kitchen equipment with small motors in them.  Feel free to rip these apart and try to put them back together....see if you can get them to work, they all did once.

And Finally, the list of materials you will have access to in order to build a functioning cell phone charger  

We will start building, in class, after Thanksgiving Break.....Remember to take copious notes in your Engineering Notebook so you can disassemble and reassemble your chargers, as we will be sharing resources across 3 classes......
