Title Induction (high school version) (Inquiry Based)
Description This uses both Faraday Lab and Faraday Law simulations. The students will use the simulation to learn the goals through an inquiry approach. Learning Goals: Students will be able to: Identify equipment and conditions that produce induction & Compare and contrast how both a light bulb and voltmeter can be used to show characteristics of the induced current & Predict how the current will change when the conditions are varied. There is also a college version that can be used as a homework.
