Circuit View:

In this simulation, you can visualize the charge flow around a circuit, and see what happens when the battery voltage or the resistor resistance is changed. You can also sketch a current vs. resistance graph for a given voltage, by choosing a voltage and then using the resistance slider to cover the full range of resistances.
