What do teachers say about this resource? (8079, 8080, 8081)

I thought this resource was really well designed. It covers all the AS topics and is an engaging mix of real-life examples of concepts we teach, very clear visuals and a great range of teaching ideas.

The variety of activities is refreshing.

C Russell, HoD and Peer Reviewer

I particularly liked the range of activities, in particular the group activities where students can share their ideas with each other. I also liked how the resources encouraged the use of key terminology allowing students to become more comfortable with the scientific words needed in their course.
