The resistor lab requires students to solve for an equivalent resistance value.

Monday is our first day back after the Christmas Break, the first day of a new semester, but not the start of a new unit. Instead, we’re continuing on with Electric Circuits (DC).

Today, I taught the kids to use a digital multimeter to read resistance. Next time we meet, they’ll visit nine sets of resistors like the ones above to read the resistance.

Get the Resistors in Circuits lab.

Oh, and for the first time in awhile, I have a warmup I’m proud of. Here ya go:

Many thanks to Leah Segal (@elbee818) for the Clicker Central link where I got these problems.
