What do teachers say about this resource? (9785, 9786, 9787)
I particularly liked that this is a well-structured resource that considers the prior knowledge students will require and areas where students may struggle, and has a comprehensive range of questions related to the required practical that students can complete both before and after the practical. I also particularly like the health and safety reminders that have been considered.
I also feel that the inclusion of both analysis and evaluation questions alongside exam-style questions will allow the students to apply their knowledge in a way that is typical of their exams.
