Levels are CK-12's student achievement levels.
Basic Students matched to this level have a partial mastery of prerequisite knowledge and skills fundamental for proficient work.
At Grade (Proficient) Students matched to this level have demonstrated competency over challenging subject matter, including subject matter knowledge, application of such knowledge to real-world situations, and analytical skills appropriate to subject matter.
Advanced Students matched to this level are ready for material that requires superior performance and mastery.

## Lorentz Force

Students will learn about the Lorentz force and how moving particles interact in a magnetic field. In addition, the right hand rule is covered.

0

## Force on an Electric Current in a Magnetic Field

Describes the effects of a magnetic field on charged particles that move within the magnetic field. The charged particles may be individual particles or they may be a current inside a wire.

0

## Electric Currents and Magnetic Fields

Describes the magnetic field created by a current through a wire and the effects of a magnetic field on charged particles that move within the magnetic field.
