    • Concept and Content Connections codes enable students to make important connections across the entire program.
  • New content to support the 13 required practicals.
  • Both volumes include content adjustments and updates in light of the latest (2015) review of the framework and in keeping with the dynamic nature of science.
  • Review activities at the end of each chapter enable students to test their understanding and are ideal as formative assessment tasks.
  • Synoptic activities suitable as summative assessments conclude each section of work.
