Unit Four– Physics:  The Characteristics of Electricity

 

OVERALL EXPECTATIONS

By the end of this course, students will:

E1. assess some of the costs and benefits associated with the production of electrical energy from renewable and non_renewable sources, and analyse how electrical efficiencies and savings can be achieved, through both the design of technological devices and practices in the home;

E2. investigate, through inquiry, various aspects of electricity, including the properties of static and current electricity, and the quantitative relationships between potential difference, current, and resistance in electrical circuits;

E3. demonstrate an understanding of the principles of static and current electricity.
