For each of the lessons below print off a copy of the Semi-notes so you can add information as you watch the video lesson. You are encouraged to press the pause button to allow time to attempt examples on your own before viewing the worked solution.

Work through all quizzes and suggested text questions. Worked solutions to all questions have been provided.

Print off instructions for each of the virtual practical activities and work through each of these. Space is provided on the instruction sheets to record your observations, calculations and measurements.

Good luck!
