General Lesson Information
 Lesson Plan ID: 35563 Title: Discovering and Applying Ohm's Law Overview/Annotation: Students will design an experiment to relate the voltage difference and current in a circuit. They will collect data, then create and analyze a graph in order to arrive at Ohm's Law. They will create circuits and determine the voltage difference, current, and resistance in the circuit using Ohm's Law.This lesson results from the ALEX Resource Gap Project.
