This course is designed as an introductory course in the fundamentals of "static" electrical interactions. This Course is meant to address the Minnesota Science Standards

2. Physical Science

3. Energy

2. Electrons respond to electric fields and voltages by moving through electrical circuits and this motion generates magnetic fields.


Explain why currents flow when free charges are placed in an electric field, and how that forms the basis for electric circuits.


Explain and calculate the relationship of current, voltage, resistance and power in series and parallel circuits.

For example: Determine the voltage between two points in a series circuit with two resistors.
