Yrs 10 & 12: Program Summaries

I promised new content, so here's the first batch. It's pretty basic, but (in my opinion) still very useful. Here are the links: 
These are condensed, one-page summaries of the entire course, covering all material that is tested in the yearly exam (trial exam for the year 12s). There is space provided for you to check through each individual knowledge/skill component and tick, cross or question mark based on how well you know it. 

For students, its main use is as a revision tool. It lets you see everything you've learnt over the year at one glance. Think of it as something like climbing Mt. Everest and surveying the steep path behind you. It helps you to see where you need to focus your exam preparation, and reminds you of the areas that you might have forgotten about that need review. For teachers, it's handy to help us see what topics we have been teaching effectively (or not so much), and also as we write exams - to make sure we have written questions that evenly spread out over the program and don't focus disproportionately on one or two topics.

That's all for today. Come back in a couple of days for more new stuff!
