Nuffield Advanced Biology: Practical Activities and Investigations
The work in the Laboratory Guides was of three types.
• Preliminary work aimed to cover possible deficiencies in the students' background and provides reinforcement material for the less able student.
• Main work was within the capacity of the majority of A-level students. The amount of practical work was carefully limited to fit into a reasonable allowance of time.
• Extension work contained broader and more rigorous treatments of some of the main work. It was intended for the more able and advanced student and to provide a range of exercises to choose from.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
