# Resistor Circuits

## When resistors are in parallel and series there are some tricks you can use to simplify the ohms law calculation.

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.

## Resistor Circuits

Students will use what they have learned from the previous lessons (ohm's law, resistors in series and resistors in parallel) and apply that knowledge to understand and solve more complicated resistor circuits.
