Series and Parallel Concept Builder

Keeping the properties of series and parallel circuits straight in your mind can be a daunting task. This Concept Builder will help assess your ability to do so and provide the feedback and correction which you need to succeed. The Concept Builder presents a description of a circuit and you must decide whether it is characteristic of a series or a parallel circuit. There are 36 questions organized into 18 Question Groups and spread across three levels of difficulty. Question-specific help is provided for each situation. Use of this Concept Builder with our Task Tracker system allows teachers to track student progress.
