There are 18 different series circuits. Students have to work out the current and PD within them, and then they progressively get harder, and students have to calculate the resistance within the circuits, the resistance of different components, and use VIR to work out either current or PD too.
There is an IDEAL worksheet for each Physics Core Practical. There are 5 questions for each Core practical that each have a different command word: I = identify D = describe E = explain A = analyse L = link I have included the acceleration one as a preview so that you can see what they look like. All others follow the same pattern, but with different questions. They are designed to be printed and students write their answers in the second column.
There are different series and parallel circuits. Students have to work out the V, I and R through knowing how current, PD and resistance behave in series and parallel, but also through using the VIR calculation. Answers included.
