10. Pull!the!probes!out!of!the!multimeter!
and!replace!them!in!the!current!
measuring!position.!The!black!probe!
will!go!into!the!same!COM!port!and!
the!red!will!now!go!into!the!port!
directly!to!the!right!(horizontal)!from!
it.!
Also,!make!sure!to!press!the!A!button!
for!measuring!current.!

11. Break!the!circuit!by!pulling!any!of!the!
resistor!legs!out!of!the!hole!on!the!
This!stops!current!from!flowing!
through!the!circuit.!By!connecting!the!
multimeter,!current!will!flow!through!
the!multimeter!and!allow!it!to!
measure!and!display!the!amount!of!
current!going!through!it.!

12. Connect!the!multimeter!probes!to!the!
circuit.!Be!sure!to!connect!the!red!to!
the!+!side!of!the!broken!node!and!
complete!the!circuit!by!connecting!the!
black!probe!to!the!other!side.!

Imagine!that!the!multimeter!is!just!a!
wire!that!is!reconnecting!the!broken!
circuit.!However,!it!is!important!to!
make!sure!that!the!probes!are!placed!
in!the!correct!polarity:!red!for!+!and!
black!for!–.!If!they!are!connected!in!
the!wrong!polarity,!the!magnitude!
will!be!correct,!but!the!direction!of!
