Step 9 - Adding Controls to the Circuit Animations
In this step I continued to develop the circuit animations by adding buttons to control the playback and to allow transitions from one circuit to another within the different animations. I will now proceed to see if I can embed the animations in the HTML rather than having them jump to a new browser window. But the controls were needed for this step.
In review, the animations display the activity in three different kinds of circuits:
A simple circuit
A series circuit
A parallel circuit
The series and parallel circuits illustrate the concept of path and load. The series circuit has one path through the different load elements. The parallel circuit uses a separate path for each load element.
