Teacher Resources

This part of the site is currently under construction and will be added to as the 2017 academic year advances.

Teachers should select the ‘Resources’ menu option above and navigate to the relevant chapter of the course being covered in class. An additional drop down menu will appear with a listing of each of the ‘Application Exercises’ from that chapter.

The intention is to include the answers to ‘Application Exercises’ as well as other contemporary references and activities that will help to provide teachers and students with greater variety and challenge throughout the year.
