    DIAGNOSTIC: Breakdown of January 2006 Regents Physics Exam

    Guide sheet to allow students to break down their performance on the January 2006 Regents Physics Exam by unit. Upon completing and scoring the exam, students fill out the diagnostic guide to determine their strengths and weaknesses. Once these areas have been identified, students may focus on areas with the greatest opportunity for improvement in order to differentiate their review time to their individual needs.

    LAB: Ohm's Law

    Overview: Basic introduction to Ohm's Law lab in which students utilize a voltage source, an ammeter, and varying resistors to determine the resistance of each resistor. Calculated (empirical) resistance is then compared to the printed resistance, illustrating the variation in electrical components.

    Materials:
    Voltage source
    Switch
    Ammeter
    5, 10, 20-ohm resistors
    connecting wires
