3 Items Exclusive This product is exclusive to Carolina Biological Supply. With Digital This kit includes 1-year access to digital resources including videos, digital teacher’s manuals, printable student guides, interactive lessons, editable assessment questions, and more.
$9.95 - $148.90 View Details

Grades 9–12. Help students master the concept of electric fields and their relationship with electrostatic forces and potential energy. By mapping the electric fields with equipotential lines, students visualize the field lines and explore how electrostatic forces operate as non-contact or action-at-a-distance forces. The kit provides materials for 15 student groups or 30 students.

Grades 9–12. Help students master the concept of electric fields and their relationship with electrostatic forces and potential energy. By mapping the electric fields with equipotential lines, students visualize the field lines and explore how electrostatic forces operate as non-contact or action-at-a-distance forces. Students map electric field lines, drawing equipotential surfaces for an electric dipole and 2 parallel plates, to understand and conceptualize how electric fields are used in calculating electrostatic force and electric potential (for a point charge in an electric field). In addition, students distinguish the use of electric fields in performing calculations from mathematical models such as Coulomb's Law. This kit provides materials for 15 student groups or 30 students and includes free 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction. The kit builds towards the Next Generation Science Standards*, augmenting 3-dimensional teaching and learning in the classroom, and toward the following NGSS Performance Expectations: HS-PS4-5, HS-PS3-2. The kit is designed to integrate into a larger unit of lessons addressing wave mechanics, electricity, magnetism, and electromagnetism.
