Electrical Energy

Grades 9-12 Performance Task

Contributed by: Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO/SCASS)

Students conduct an experiment to find out how well different wires radiate heat when voltage is applied across the wire. Students will use the results of their experiments to consider how the gauge of the wire and the type of wire affect the amount of heat radiated. Then, students will use what they learned from the experiment to address a practical problem solving situation.
