This is pretty much a text book lesson. It is not paper less either as section of the book has just been screen grabbed and plastered on a PP which is impossible to read from the back of the room.
I have taken your feedback on board and have updated the lesson. The updated resource should be available to download shortly. Apologies for the inconvenience caused. Kind regards paperfriendlyresources
