Ch 31: MTTC Integrated Science (Secondary): Magnetism

About This Chapter

Watch this series of video lessons to prepare for questions on the MTTC Integrated Science (Secondary) exam about magnetic forces, magnetic fields and electromagnetic induction.

MTTC Integrated Science (Secondary): Magnetism - Chapter Summary

Use this chapter to prepare for questions on the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification (MTTC) Integrated Science (Secondary) related to magnetism. This chapter consists of a series of short, engaging and mobile device compatible videos in which our professional instructors explain:

  • Poles and dipoles of magnetic forces
  • Magnetic fields
  • Effects of magnetic forces on moving charges
  • Elements and variables of electromagnetic induction
  • Applications of electromagnetism

Once you've completed these lessons, take the quizzes that accompany them to discover topics you have not mastered. You can also use the video tags to go directly to where these topics were discussed and fortify your mastery of these areas before you test your overall understanding with the chapter exam. Use the results from the chapter exam to gauge how prepared you are for related questions on the MTTC Integrated Science (Secondary) test.

MTTC Integrated Science (Secondary): Magnetism Chapter Objectives

The MTTC Integrated Science (Secondary) is a certification exam used to credential prospective high school science teachers. Test takers have the options to complete the 100 multiple-choice questions of this exam on a paper-based test or computer-based test. Of the material covered in this exam, 25% of the questions belong to the Physical Science domain. This domain is where you could see some questions about magnetism. This chapter will help you prepare for these questions by reviewing information on magnetic forces, magnetic fields and electromagnetic induction.

Magnetic Force: Definition, Poles & Dipoles

1. Magnetic Force: Definition, Poles & Dipoles

You're probably familiar with magnets, but have you ever stopped to consider how they work? In this lesson, we'll look at the root of magnetism and some of the fundamental properties of magnets.

What is a Magnetic Field?

2. What is a Magnetic Field?

Magnetic fields fill the space around all magnets, but they're impossible to detect with our own senses. We'll use a common tool to map out a magnetic field and then discuss ferromagnetic materials to see how a magnetic field can be used to create new magnets.

How Magnetic Fields Are Created

3. How Magnetic Fields Are Created

Have you ever wondered how magnetic fields are created? In this lesson, we'll discuss the very simple answer to this question and look at how electric current can be used to make electromagnets, which have many everyday applications.

How Magnetic Forces Affect Moving Charges

4. How Magnetic Forces Affect Moving Charges

A magnetic field exerts a force on a moving charged particle in ways that you might not expect. In this lesson, we're going to look at the direction of this force and the factors that affect its strength.

Electromagnetic Induction: Definition & Variables that Affect Induction

5. Electromagnetic Induction: Definition & Variables that Affect Induction

We use electromagnetic induction every day, but do you have any idea what it is? In this lesson, we'll discuss this everyday phenomenon, the factors that affect its strength and its most common applications.

Electromagnetic Induction: Conductor to Conductor & Transformers

6. Electromagnetic Induction: Conductor to Conductor & Transformers

Every day, we make use of a special case of electromagnetic induction known as mutual induction. In this lesson, we'll talk about this special phenomenon and how it is used in many common devices.

Technological Applications of Electromagnetism

7. Technological Applications of Electromagnetism

What is electromagnetism? And how do we use it in the world? Electromagnetism has a huge number of technological applications that range from fun to life-saving. Learn about a few of them, and see what you remember by taking a quiz.
