Learning Objective
At the end of the lesson you should be able to explain the difference between series and parallel circuits.

#### Slide 2 -Tekstslide

This slide should be presented first to set the learning objective for the lesson.

What is an Electrical Circuit?
An electrical circuit is a path that carries electricity from a power source to a device that uses it.

#### Slide 4 -Tekstslide

Introduce the concept of an electrical circuit to the students and show a visual aid if possible.
Series Circuits
In a series circuit, the components are connected one after the other in a single loop. If one component fails, the entire circuit will be broken.

#### Slide 5 -Tekstslide

Explain the characteristics of a series circuit and provide examples.
Parallel Circuits
In a parallel circuit, the components are connected in separate branches. If one component fails, the others will continue to work.

#### Slide 6 -Tekstslide

Explain the characteristics of a parallel circuit and provide examples.
Resistance in Series Circuits
In a series circuit, the total resistance is the sum of the individual resistances. As more components are added, the total resistance increases.

#### Slide 7 -Tekstslide

Explain how resistance in series circuits works and provide examples.
Resistance in Parallel Circuits
In a parallel circuit, the total resistance is less than the individual resistances. As more components are added, the total resistance decreases.

#### Slide 8 -Tekstslide

Explain how resistance in parallel circuits works and provide examples.
Calculating Total Resistance
To calculate the total resistance in a series circuit, add the individual resistances. To calculate the total resistance in a parallel circuit, use the formula 1/Rt = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + ...

#### Slide 9 -Tekstslide

Provide students with formulas and examples to calculate total resistance in both series and parallel circuits.
Real-World Applications
Series and parallel circuits are used in many electrical devices, including Christmas lights and home wiring.

#### Slide 10 -Tekstslide

Provide examples of real-world applications of series and parallel circuits to help students understand their importance.
Write down 3 things you learned in this lesson.

#### Slide 11 -Open vraag

Have students enter three things they learned in this lesson. With this they can indicate their own learning efficiency of this lesson.
Write down 2 things you want to know more about.

#### Slide 12 -Open vraag

Here, students enter two things they would like to know more about. This not only increases involvement, but also gives them more ownership.

#### Slide 13 -Open vraag

The students indicate here (in question form) with which part of the material they still have difficulty. For the teacher, this not only provides insight into the extent to which the students understand/master the material, but also a good starting point for the next lesson.
