This virtual manipulative allows the teacher or students to add various components of a circuit, vary settings, and measure parameters along the circuit. The items may be displayed in "real life" mode or as a schematic.
A "grab bag" has items that may be added to the circuit in order to determine whether the item is a conductor or insulator.
Instructions and teaching guides are available as links on the Web page where the resource is accessed.
