Instructional Ideas
  • Include multiple challenges from the series to create a group of lessons to develop the concept of an electric field
  • Have pupils sketch different electric fields and the resulting path of the charged object
Classroom Considerations
  • Requires an understanding of the behavior of charged particles
  • Allows individuals to manipulate the charge and location of objects
  • Uses vectors to describe the force on the objects
  • None
