Parallel Circuits - ∆V = I•R Calculations

Parallel circuits often provide less of a challenge for teens than parallel parking. An installment of a series on parallel electric circuits requires learners to solve increasingly difficult  levels of calculations. Each level provides a Help Me! button describing the data by columns to help scholars as they work.
