Didactic material accompanying the product Class Set Optics

Lesson plans, tasks and solutions in English and Portuguese

Editable format of the accompanying didactic material

Our provided learning material can be used directly in the classroom. Nevertheless, many teachers have the need to individualize the tasks and solutions in order to suit the particular application in the best possible way. The task and solution sheets are therefore deliberately provided in Word format. This allows you to customize and modify them as you wish before you start printing.
