Ohm’s Law – 5 minutes
Identifies the three basic parts of a simple electrical circuit and the electrical property associated with each. Using Ohm’s law, describes the relationship between current, voltage, and resistance in a circuit. Demonstrates how to calculate the current, voltage, or resistance of a simple circuit, when the other two quantities are known.

Series Circuits – 6 minutes
Identifies the characteristics of a series circuit. Explains the principles of series circuits relating to current, total resistance, and Kirchhoff’s voltage law.

Parallel Circuits – 7 minutes
Identifies the characteristics of a parallel circuit. Explains the principles of parallel circuits relating to voltage, branch currents, Kirchhoff’s current law, and total resistance.

Power and Energy – 6 minutes
Defines electric power. Explains how power, current, or voltage can be calculated for a DC circuit when the other two quantities are known. Defines energy and explains how energy is calculated.
