Arduino Kit Information: Thermistors
The thermistor is a resistive device that changes resistance as it's temperature changes. The thermistors included with the kit is a NTC (Negitive Temperature Coefficient) devices. With these devices the resistance decreaces when the temperature increaces. They are also a 10K device, wher the noninal resistance is 10 at room temperature 25C or 77F.

I have a sample Sketch uning thermisitors in Hackers' Notebook Forums @ It's cold out there. 10K Thermistors
