Equivalent Resistance

The Equivlent Resistance Interactive is a skill-building activity focusing on the concept of an equivalent resistance. The activity begins by presenting basic series and parallel circuits, followed by more complex combination circuits. Learners must identify resistance values that are required to create a specified equivalent resistance. There are 18 different situations to analyze or levels to complete. Upon completion of a level, learners will be returned to the Main Menu and a star will be displayed next to the Level.
