Customising files:

The files are “read only” but can be saved under a new name and then altered as you wish. The colours have been chosen to be clear in most lighting conditions but can be tweaked if necessary. Open a file, select view and view master and slide master. Right click and choose background, click on the colour arrow and choose more colours. Try a standard colour (or custom colour) near to the one used. Alterations can also be made to the slide contents. Microsoft equation editor has been used for the equations. You may need to ungroup (on the draw menu) in order to make alterations and re-animate the slides after alterations.Volume 4 Single User £39 + vat. Site Licence £150 + vat.

"This is the Whiteboard Maths of A Level. It is a series of PowerPoint files that covers the whole of the A Level course. Volume 1 is A/S, Volume 2 is A2, and Volume 3 is Statistics. The coverage and detail are extremely impressive, and once again if you are looking to introduce some ICT into A Level teaching, then there is no better single package around. But once again, be warned - each slide contains so much detail that it can be overwhelming for students if they are merely clicked through."
