Title Introduction to Current, Voltage, and Resistance
Description This is a set of guided notes for the first day that our students are introduced to current, voltage and resistance. Learning goals are: i) Explain what voltage, resistance and current are; ii) Identify their roles in a ciruit. The answer key is formatted slightly differently than the students notes. This activity falls in the middle of a week that starts with electrostatics (and the balloon sim) and ends with constructing circuits in series and in parallel both in the circuit construction sim and in real life (with a real circuit board).
