1. Describe how electrical circuits can be used to produce light, heat, sound, and magnetic fields.
  • Identifying ways to use and conserve electrical energy
  • Identifying characteristics of parallel and series circuits
  • Classifying materials as conductors, nonconductors, and insulators of electricity and heat
  • Identifying relationships among charge, current, and potential energy
  • Identifying components of a circuit
    SC2015 (4)
    4. Design, construct, and test a device that changes energy from one form to another (e.g., electric circuits converting electrical energy into motion, light, or sound energy; a passive solar heater converting light energy into heat energy).*
