SALTERS ADVANCED CHEMISTRY
Individual Investigation Resource Sheets


Linda Taylor now teaches at the City College, Brighton and Hove. In February 2002, during her time teaching at City and Islington College in London, she was awarded the Hertfordshire Teaching Scholarship which allowed her to be released from some of her teaching duties in the academic year 2002-2003 to persue a project of her choice. Linda used the time liberated by the Scholarship to produce a series of Investigation Resource Sheets, devised to support students and teachers in the SAC Individual Investigation.

The sheets were originally made available to Salters Teachers through the Teachers' Forum but they can now be downloaded from this site in each of two versions, as Word (.doc) files and as PDF files, the latter being read and printed by means of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

The table below contains links which allow the download of single investigations in each of the two versions. Left-clicking on a link should call up the sheet directly from the server and open it in a new "window". Right-clicking on a link and then clicking on "Save Target As" allows the file to be saved on your own computer from which it can be opened whenever required. Also included in this list is the Introduction to the series and an Index, again in the two versions to be retrieved and read in the same way as for the sheets for a single investigation.
