1. This small group activity is designed to help students apply Maxwell's equations to determine the continuity conditions of the magnetic field across a sheet of current.
  2. Students apply the integral forms of Maxwell's Equations to find the continuity (and discontinuity) conditions of the magnetic field (either the perpendicular or parallel component) as it crosses a sheet of current.
  3. Discussion focuses on the coordinate system (naming the thing you don't know), as well as how to choose and use Gaussian surfaces and Amperian loops appropriately.
