Experiment With Accurate Electricity
Easy-to-use experiments - supported by 40 reproducible lab
worksheets - help students build a practical knowledge of electricity and its
physical principles. Hands-on virtual experiments provide a safe means for
students to apply electrical concepts to real-world devices while practicing
important scientific process skills.
Special features include reference materials from the World
Book Encyclopedia and Virtual Manipulatives that help students make the
connection between concrete and abstract concepts.
Accurate, Easy-to-Use Simulations "Hands-on"
experiments developed by science and education experts allow students to
investigate electricity-from conductors, insulators, resistors, capacitors, and
thermal switches to circuits in doorbells.
Scientific Skills Development Students practice
valuable thinking skills-observation, prediction, deductive reasoning,
conceptual modeling, theory building, and hypothesis testing-as they solve
Virtual Manipulatives Using Virtual
Manipulatives, students can control, modify, and experiment with electrical
systems in a safe and accurate manner to visualize concrete and abstract
Safe, Easy, Cost-Effective Learning about
electricity can be fraught with hazardous situations and broken parts.
Innovative software simulations eliminate risk of fire and electrocution. And
since each experiment is virtual, there are no replacement costs for parts!
Multimedia Reference Materials Quick-reference
pullouts, an interactive Sci-Clopedia, and over 50 World BookTM Encyclopedia
articles-with animated illustrations and suggestions for further
experiments-provide students with ample material for exploration.
