The Electricity and Magnetism unit covers Static Electricity, Current Electricity, Magnetism, and Electromagnetism. The unit is structured around the lab work and in-class activities. Many of the activities are inquiry based. They attempt to allow students to discover the laws of science involved in the unit. Everything has been provided as a Word 1997-2004 .doc document and as a PDF. This redundancy is in case the formatting fails to download properly.
The Electricity and Magnetism unit should be proceeded by:
1. Topics to be taught:
Static Electricity and Charge:
2. Skills to be taught:
The entire unit should take about three weeks to complete for a class that meets 200 minutes a week. The timing of the unit revolves around the lab work and in-class activities. The lab/activities are arranged in numerical order. The #5 activity, Jurassic Park, and the #4 activity, Potential Difference and Circuits can be interchanged. The review games prepare students for the group quiz and unit exam. The games work best the day before each assessment.
