The Three-Phase AC Generator
By Terry Fleischman
In this 3D animated object, learners examine the way in which a three-phase generator produces three sine waves with three armature coils. A quiz completes the activity.
Total Resistance of a Series Circuit
In this learning activity you'll review the process of solving for the total resistance in a series DC circuit.
A Model for Initiating Conflict Resolution
By Ann Heidkamp
In this learning activity you'll identify and write assertive "I" statements that focus on BCF (behavior, consequences, and feelings).
Case Study: Cardiac Disorders and Occupational Therapy
By Ann Jadin
In this interactive object, learners identify the risk factors and the precautions to follow when treating a patient with a cardiac condition. They also design a treatment plan for that patient.
Voltage and Current Amplitudes in a Series RLC Circuit
Learners examine how voltages and currents vary in a series RLC circuit as the applied frequency changes.
