Today, we'll continue learning about the circuits we learned about last time.  We'll take a look at what it means to have resistors in series and in parallel.  We'll try to analyze series and parallel circuits with power and equivalent resistance.  We'll see a demonstration which will help us construct understanding of how parallel circuits are different from series circuits, followed by a deriving the formula for equivalent resistance in series and parallel circuits.
