Teacher Resources

The Physics Classroom has been devoted to helping students, teachers, and classrooms since the 1990s. We are as passionate about that mission now as we have ever been. If you are a teacher of Physics or Physical Science, we encourage you to use our Video Tutorial with your students. And we also encourage you to consider the use of other resources on our website that coordinate with the video. We have listed a few below to help you get started.

Curriculum Corner, Electric Circuits Section

Our Curriculum Corner is composed of a collection of Think Sheets. Each one makes for a great component of any Lesson Plan. They work great for both independent practice exercises and cooperative group exercises. The following Think Sheet makes a great complement to this video:

Electric Crcuits and Current

Teacher Toolkits: Circuit Concepts

Try a Teacher Toolkit ... you might be very glad that you did. Each toolkit includes annotated links to vetted resources from across the web that we feel reliably support the specific topic. Give this one on circuit concepts a try.


Minds On Physics, Electric Circuits Module, Mission EC1

A Minds On Physics mission will give a student a mental workout. But when they're done, you can be confident that they have worked through the details of a concept with some degree of depth. This mission on Voltage in circuits is a good fit to the video. Use it with a Task Tracker account and have students progress tracked.

Electric Current Concept Builder

The first two of three activities of this Concept Builder may be suitable for viewers of this video. It is a great tool when used with a Task Tracker subscription.

Physics Classroom Tutorial, Electric Circuits Chapter: Electric Current

The content discussed in our videos is almost always present at the Tutorial section of our website. This particular page is the written version of our video. It makes a great reference for students. Use the trick many teachers use - link to it from your course page.
