Practicals The Science 10 Workbook contains 48 practicals, suitable for all classes. Each practical is followed by a Â�Thinking about itÂ� section that links the practical work with the theory being learnt. Revision Tasks and Quizzes The CD in the Science 10 Workbook contains 212 computer revision tasks to help students master the knowledge needed for Level 5 Science. The 130 classroom quizzes will provide motivation for students to do the revision tasks, and they also review the previous lessonÂ�s work, helping knowledge move from short-term to long-term memory.
