Teaching Topics & Concepts: Physics. Resistance. Voltage. National Science Standards Alignment The lab exercise aligns with the content requirements for the AP Physics 2 Unit 4 on Electric Circuits. It would also align with NGSS standards concerning electric current, resistance and circuits as well as some standards associated with the engineering standards, science methods and data analysis. Materials: • 10 gummy bears per student • 1 razor blade/scapel per student • 1 sheet of 8 ½ x 11" white paper (dissection surface) • Transparent tape Safety: • There are no major hazards present as long as the current and voltage levels are kept relatively low ( <5.0 V ). Students should be forewarned that the pencil lead may become hot to the touch (this will affect pencil lead resistivity also).
