Current Electricity Checklist
Can I …
•
use appropriate terminology related to current electricity.
•
identify electrical quantities (current, potential difference, resistance, electrical energy) and list
their symbols and their corresponding SI units.
•
compare and contrast static electricity with current electricity.
•
identify the components of a simple circuit and explain their functions.
•
explain the characteristics of electric current, potential difference, and resistance in simple series
and parallel circuits, noting how the quantities differ in the two circuits.
•
describe, the interrelationships between resistance, potential difference, and electric current.
•
explain what different meters measure and how they are connected within an electric circuit to
measure electric quantities.
•
design, draw circuit diagrams of, and construct series and parallel circuits, and measure electric
current and potential difference at various points in the circuit.
•
solve simple problems involving potential difference V, electric current I, and resistance R using
