The Parallel Circuits Toolkit provides teachers with standards-based resources for designing lesson plans and units that pertain to such topics as equivalent resistance, electric potential difference, and current for the various devices wired into a parallel circuit. The Toolkit is supported by Lesson 4 of the Electric Circuits Chapter at The Physics Classroom Tutorial
Each toolkit can be viewed in three different ways.
Parallel Circuits - HTML Version of Complete Toolkit
The HTML version of the complete toolkit contains all the resources with full descriptions and links to their location on the web. The complete toolkit also includes learning objectives and references the pertinent standards addressed by the resources.
Parallel Circuits - PDF Version of Complete Toolkit
The PDF version of the complete toolkit contains all the resources with full descriptions in a printer-friendly format. Learning objectives and relevant standards are also included in the PDF Version of the complete toolkit.
Parallel Circuits - Toolkit To Go
The Toolkit To Go is a 2-page PDF document that provides an abbreviated version of the complete toolkit. It contains as much information as could fit on two pages. Toolkits To Go can be photo-copied back-to-back, hole-punched, and filed in a teacher's folder or three-ring binder for future reference.
