Part of Lesson Plan: Use of a Multimeter (updated) By Michael Drouin

Activity Overview / Details

One other thing the multimeter will do is it will check continuity. Show on the overhead the continuity position, switch meter to continuity position then demonstrate that it beeps when probes are touched. Explain that this is used to check if the circuit is complete, open, short to ground, short to power.

Demonstrate electrical connection on several items or your choice. I use a couple of wires. The last example I use is a large metal table, where I can demonstrate a physically large circuit.


Assessment Types:
walk around the class show the students the meter in the continunity position
