Website Detail Page

written by Tony Kuphaldt
This page contains links to more than 50 worksheets on basic electricity and DC circuits, plus many more on topics relating to AC circuits and digital electronics. Students may directly interact with the online version of the worksheet, which includes answers. The materials may also be freely downloaded for teachers who prefer to print them with solutions hidden.

Editor's Note: The worksheets are designed as formative assessments to gauge student understanding before moving to the next concept. Most questions require conceptual analysis, while about one third provide practice in performing quantitative operations.

This item is part of a larger series of textbooks on electricity and digital electronics, all part of the Open Book Project. Each chapter is supplemented with related diagrams, photos, labs, and problem sets.

This resource is part of 2 Physics Front Topical Units.


Topic: Electricity and Electrical Energy
Unit Title: Moving Charges and Electric Circuits

This is an exemplary set of 50+ short assessments on the basics of electricity and electric circuits. They offer teachers flexibility: 1) students can go online to interactively answer questions and see correct responses, 2) Students can work in small groups to discuss strategies before looking at answers, or 3) Teachers can print the worksheets with answers hidden. Most of the questions require analytical reasoning and will help teachers gauge whether students are getting the big picture.
