About these tutorials

These tutorials have been created from various Internet sites and have been modified by myself, and in some instances have been reworked or completely re-written to suit my classes. There is an abundance of on line tutorials and most are very useful, however I have had to modify these for high school students and simplify or removed parts of advanced sessions; if students are keen enough they will progress by looking at the links provided. Therefore you should treat these as introductory or begining tutorials. The easiest start at 100 and progress in difficulty through that range. Where possible I have included links to sites and apologise for any that I might have missed.
