Teacher's notes and resource

Use of the simulation

This simulated practical is not like a normal simulation, where the computer takes over and does the work for the student. In this simulation the student must take the readings and plot the graphs for themselves. The aim is not to mimic the dexterity required for the experiment, but the thought processes involved.

The SQA have stated that this simulation cannot be used as evidence of assessment. While the candidate may use the simulations as practice or as part of preparation for the experimental work, the candidate must for assessment purposes actually carry out the practical work.
