This website contains a series of peer instruction problems on electricity, designed to be solved in a classroom setting. The problems are presented with a qualitative (usually multiple choice) question that is carefully constructed to engage student difficulties with fundamental concepts. Students consider the problem individually and contribute their answers using personal response systems (clickers). Students then confer with their cooperative groups and vote again on the correct response. Topics covered include superpositioning, electrical potential energy, electric fields, current, Ohm's Law, parallel and series combinations of resistors, and capacitors.
This problem set is part of the Physics Suite collection, containing sample problems, peer instruction problems, and alternative homework sets for introductory physics courses. See Related Materials on this page for a link to the author's free online book that explains the principles and pedagogy behind The Physics Suite and provides in-depth instructions for the physics teacher.
