This website is a "three clicks and you're there" site. It is designed for speedy access for most of us in education, whose computer facilities are cheap, scantily maintained and somewhat unreliable. It therefore does not have any fancy logos or frames or anything that will delay downloading. We know you probably don't have time for fiddly websites to unfold themselves. It also means that we can update is more often. You will, however, need Acrobat Reader which can be downloaded for free to access the teaching activities.
