Title Battery-Resistor Circuit Simulation Homework
Description This is a one multiple-part problem homework that uses phet's Battery-Resistor Circuit SIM to explore battery-resistor circuits and the conditions that make a a brighter light bulb filament possible. This activity was developed in 2003 before most of our research with PhET interviews and before we developed the Inquiry Guidelines. Therefore, the lessons are more directed then we would now recommend. Also, this activity was used in a course with very large enrollment (200+), so many questions are constrained to being multiple choice or numeric for computer grading. Please email phethelp@colorado.edu if you are a teacher and would like a solution key.
