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:

  1. A simple circuit
  2. A series circuit
  3. 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.
