Workbook assignments cover the material you have been learning in the unit.

Short Answer Questions

Even though your answers are relatively brief, it's important that they are written in full sentences using formal language.

  • Use linking words such as additionally, for example and however to ensure your ideas and sentences ideas flow smoothly.
  • You may use bullet points or lists in place of full sentences where appropriate. 
  • When using bullet points, ensure you write a phrase or sentence that leads into the list.
  • Make sure you have addressed all parts of each question, as some questions actually have two or more parts (for instance, Explain X and give two examples).

Multiple Choice Questions

  • Review your answers at the end if you have time. It's okay to change your mind and your answer, if you're sure it was wrong.
  • Cross out choices that are clearly wrong and focus on thinking about the ones that could be correct.
  • If you can't decide between two answers, ask yourself which choice more completely answers the question. If a choice is only somewhat true or is true only in some circumstances, then it's unlikely to be the correct answer.

Matching Questions

These questions have a list of terms on one side of the page, and a list of definitions on the other.  You need to match each term with its definition.

  • Read all the terms first (these are shorter and quicker to read).
  • Then read the first definition. Look at the terms again and choose the one that best fits the definition.
  • Continue down the list of definitions, matching each to a term as you go.
  • If you're not sure about which term fits a definition, put a question mark next to it and come back later.


  • Include in your answer all the calculation steps you have done to reach your final answer.
  • Remember to write the unit of measurement in the answer if there is one, for example, mL, MICROg, cm etc.
