View Resource Current Controlled Voltage Source (CCVS)

This interactive website from professor James A. Svoboda of Clarkson University describes a circuit that contains a Current Controlled Voltage Source (CCVS). The gain of the CCVS can be changed using the scrollbar.

View Resource What is Ohmic? I-V Characteristics of a Diode vs. a Resistor

The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this activity as a vehicle to examine the I-V characteristics of a diode versus a resistor. The exercise will measure the voltage drop across both a diode and a resistor as voltage is varied. The students will then discover the relationship between current and voltage. The lesson includes step by step directions for the...

View Resource How Batteries Work Activity

This resource provides an introductory activity on how batteries work. As the module states, "batteries have traditionally been made from one or more electrochemical cells?a package that contains chemicals needed to run a redox reaction, but separated such that exchange of electrons happens by passing through a circuit external to the battery." The activity covers concepts such as voltage, c...

View Resource How A Light Emitting Diode Works

This is a downloadable software simulation of light emitting diode simulation. It demonstrates band gap theory and shows how a single photon is created. Users can adjust the input voltage to allow the recombination of the electrons and holes. Note what happens to the photon when you adjust the band gap energy. This free program requires Windows 9x, NT, XP or later. Note that this will NOT run on...

View Resource How To Use A Multimeter

In this video Bre Pettis and Joe Grand teach you how to use a multimeter! The video is a step by step presentation about how to use this piece of equipment. Overall, it is a basic introduction, but could be used for an introductory course in technical education.
