Teachers Guide

The teachers guide is divided into two pieces. The first is an introduction to the exercise and how it is carried out. The second is a tour of the data maps that are used in the exercise.

Each part is available below in 2 formats. The first is a PowerPoint presentation. The second is a PDF file. PDF files may be opened using Adobe Acrobat Reader which is available free from Adobe.

Both formats contain the same information. Each slide is accompanied by notes. In the both versions, you should see the notes displayed below the slide. If you use "Slide Show" in PowerPoint or display the slides using the PowerPoint plug in for IE, you will not see the notes! I suggest that you "Save" the .ppt file to your hard disk and then open it with PowerPoint. Then you will see the slides and the notes! The PDF version is best if you would like to be able to print the Teachers Guide.
