Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Construct series-parallel circuits.

Definition

Construction should include
  • using a conductor, a load, and a voltage source
  • connecting components
  • testing output for desired results.

Process/Skill Questions

  • How does the model compare to the simulation?
  • Why is circuit behavior predictable in a series-parallel circuit?
  • What methods may be employed to test the circuit?
  • What are examples of series-parallel circuits used in industry or households?
