# Ch 10: AP Physics 1 Direct Current Circuits: Homeschool Curriculum

The Direct Current Circuits unit of this AP Physics 1 Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about electric circuits. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

## Who's it for?

This unit of our AP Physics 1 Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about direct current circuits. There is no faster or easier way to learn about this type of electric circuit. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about electric current and resistance, the components of parallel and series circuits, Kirchhoff's rules, Ohm's law and calculations involving power and equivalent resistance.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a physics curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

## How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and a direct current circuit unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.
