Unit 4: Electricity

Chapter 6 & 7
CA- California K-12 Academic Content Standards
Concept 5: Electric and magnetic phenomena are related and have many practical applications. As a basis for understanding this concept:
Standard d: Students know the properties of transistors and the role of transistors in electric circuits.
Standard e: Students know charged particles are sources of electric fields and are subject to the forces of the electric fields from other charges.
Standard h: Students know changing magnetic fields produce electric fields, thereby inducing currents in nearby conductors.
Standard i: Students know plasmas, the fourth state of matter, contain ions or free electrons or both and conduct electricity.

Learning Objectives:
1. Trace Circuit Paths (5d)
2. Interpret the electric symbols for battery, bulb, wire, and switch (5d,e)
3. Draw a circuit diagram of a real circuit (5d,e)
4. Identify open and closed circuits (5e)
5. Describe the electric forces electric chargers exert on each other (5e)
6. Describe the transfer of energy in a circuit (5e, h, i)
7. Classify materials as conductors, semiconductors, or insulators (5e, h, i)
