# Ch 7: Electricity & Magnetism

Use the short and engaging video lessons in this chapter to help your middle school students learn more about electricity and magnetism. They can examine electric potential, voltage sources and electric current among other concepts and take self-assessment quizzes to gauge their comprehension of the materials.

## Electricity & Magnetism - Chapter Summary

Use the video lessons in this chapter to reinforce the knowledge your middle school students have already gained regarding electricity and magnetism. The videos, usually less than 10 minutes, help students learn more about series and parallel circuits, electric potential and electrical resistance. Students can also take a closer look at magnetic fields and forces, examining what they are and how they are created. The lessons challenge students to analyze electromagnetic induction and also learn about converting between electrical and mechanical energy in electric motors and generators. Self-assessment quizzes are available to assess your students' comprehension of the materials. You can also contact instructors if you have questions about this chapter.
