Using 3D graphics and 2D electronic symbols, you will assemble different types of series circuits using wires, switches, batteries, and light bulbs. In order to better understand the difference between a series and a parallel circuit, build a circuit that illuminates two bulbs and observe what happens when one light bulb is removed.
Ratings and Reviews
Nice little app. The lessons are extremely basic, but if you're looking to undestand the very basics of a serial circuit, this is a good app. All explanations are very clear (if a bit redundant) there are multiple examples of the same circuit in different configurations. My wish is that they didn't confine the app to a single circuit type, and that it was a more comprehensive and in depth introduction.
Parallel circutts, serial circuits, understanding resistance, and perhaps building up to understanding impedence and.. well turn it in to a full blown education system. Even creating it as a base with 1 lesson and in-app module additions for further learning would be cool. Hopefully more will be forthcoming.
Very Nice, However...
This app was done very nicely and would be a great app for a young student interested in electronics or the electrical trades, however, it is very simple and short. Even a person who has no electrical education would be able to finish the entire apps objectives in less than 15 minutes. Would love to see the developer add a section on parrallel circuits or maybe even offer more advance levels of electrical theory with advaced objectives. This is a great start to something that could be used in classrooms or just people interested in the knowledge, but it needs to go further.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
