CK-12 Foundation's Single Variable Calculus FlexBook introduces high school students to the topics covered in the Calculus AB course. Topics include: Limits, Derivatives, and Integration.
CK-12 Calculus Teacher's Edition covers tips, common errors, enrichment, differentiated instruction and problem solving for teaching CK-12 Calculus Student Edition. The solution guide is available upon request.
In this electric circuit guided inquiry students will investigate what an electric circuit is, the main parts of a circuit and the difference between series and parallel circuits. Students will work in small groups and create a circuit using materials provided by the teacher. Students will draw and label a closed and open circuit, a series of circuits, and parallel circuit. Students will then meet with a different small group and share their results.
This set of problems provides students practice with calculations dealing with electric circuits. Each problem features an audio clip describing the solution process. 34 problems in the set
In this introductory physics activity, students will investigate the basic requirements for electricity. They will create a simple circuit for a quiz board that will light up when the correct matching pair is selected. Students will create six questions and answers for the quiz board, using electricity vocabulary terms.
In this activity students will first brainstorm all the terms (vocabulary) they can think of related to electricity. Next, they will work collaboratively in groups to try to define these terms. Then in groups they will create word webs drawing correlations between the various terms. Groups will discuss how light bulbs work, how they light up, write down their ideas. Next, students will try to draw what they believe a circuit is and how it works. They will need to write several sentences concerning their thoughts. Then they will be given a battery, wires and a light bulb and asked to check their designs. Students will explore what they believe series and parallel circuits are, write down their ideas and draw some pictures. They then will be given materials to try and create these circuits. Finally, students will predict and test differences in bulb brightness in a variety of series and parallel circuits.
Background: students are familiar with static electricity, charge, and sparks. They also know about conservation of energy, forms of energy including potential energy, power, and work. Students will complete a variety of activities using breadboards, which will display various types of circuits and their effect on the flow of electricity.
Afraid of the dark? Hopefully, after these fun experiments in our series Science in the Dark, you will have a greater appreciation for the nighttime. Using our sense of touch, we will get “hands-on” with our first set of experiments!
We have created helpful clips if you're unable to watch the full video:

This is an Algebra 2 Unit that explores sequences and series. This includes arithmetic, geometric, and other sequences, as well as recursive and explicit formulas that generate these sequences. Arithmetic, finite geometric, and infinite geometric series are also covered in this unit. This unit is designed as a flipped instructional unit. Worksheets and video links are provided.
