Two useful phrases(Teaching tip)

Insist… and gain

Insist at all times on describing:

Teacher: current in Something

Teacher: voltage across Something

It just does not make sense to talk about the current across the bulb or the voltage through the bulb.

If pupils get these the wrong way around, the chances are that they do not understand the underlying ideas.

Teacher Tip: There's value in being careful and consistent about describing things we cannot see–it's a real aid to the pupils as they try to imagine the world of currents and voltages.
