This module builds on students' existing knowledge about electricity and magnetism; ideas are explored and developed using discussion work,  practical work, models, and computer simulations.  Many key concepts, essential to an understanding of the GCSE content, are introduced.  The emphasis is on developing skills, including building circuits, fault finding, measuring voltages and currents, and drawing circuit diagrams.  Students also develop a qualitative understanding of voltage, current and resistance, and extension work provides opportunities to develop quantitative understanding of these ideas.
