This is a revision lesson on experiments, experimental designs and pilot studies. It is designed for second years, having already covered it in detail in the first year. It includes a ppt and a notes sheet with activities throughout to check learning. The students complete the notes sheet as we work through the ppt so they have some bits to fill in and activities to complete. The answers are on the ppt for activities.
