Today, we’ll start Unit 9 and talk about what makes current flow. We’ll talk about how circuits relate to the concepts of electric fields and electric potential. Then, we'll do a lab where you will construct the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance.

Presentation: Electric Current Introduction Homework: Finish your lab graphs, transforming if necessary. Put your graphs in a Google Sheets file on Google Classroom. Then come up with a proportionality relationship between voltage, current, and resistance. (Does not need to include coefficient.)

If you missed the lab or have questions about what you should get for the V vs. I graph, then watch the following video:

Ohm's Law (Smart Learning for All)

For those of you missing the lab, you'll have to make up the lab with this simulation:
