Students work practice problems to calculate the total resistance of a circuit. Feedback is provided.
PLC Counter Instructions
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated object, learners examine the operation of up-counters and down-counters for a programmable controller. A brief quiz completes the activity.
The TI-83 Plus Calculator: Using the Exponent Function
By Patrick Hoppe
This primer introduces the student to the proper use of the "EE" function to perform calculations on very large or very small numbers.
Designing a Ladder Diagram
By Terry Bartelt, Terry Fleischman
In this animated object, learners examine the design of a ladder circuit that provides manual control to a water pumping system. Students also study modifications to the circuit as the complexity of the system increases.
Equivalent Gates/Ladder Logic Circuits
Learners will identify ladder logic diagrams and the logic functions they perform.
Series-Parallel DC Circuits Analysis
Learners follow a methodical approach for the dc analysis of series-parallel circuits.
Series-Parallel Practice Problems Circuit 4
In this interactive object, learners work 12 problems dealing with dc circuit analysis.
Ohm's Law Practice Problems #1
Learners review Ohm's Law and then work 12 problems. In each of the problems, students are given two of the three variables (voltage, resistance, or current) and are asked to solve for the third.
Abbreviations Representing Electrical Quantities
In this learning activity you'll identify abbreviations that represent quantities associated with electrical circuits.
How Adding Parallel Branches Decreases Total Resistance
In this animated object, learners follow an analogy of water flowing through pipes and valves to see how resistance decreases in a parallel circuit as branches are added.
