Title Virtual Lab - Circuit Basics
Description Students start with basic circuit concepts: building a simple circuit, recording the current and testing the equation V=IR. Then they start building series and parallel circuits, and develop the rules for current and potential difference for each type. On an inquiry scale of 1-4, I'd put this at a 1 or 2: the instructions are fairly detailed and specific, because there are particular concepts that I wanted the students to come across as they work.
