Section Navigation

Each module is divided into sections.

Each module has been designed along a linear sequence, starting at the first section and continuing through the last. Clicking the 'Next' button at the bottom of the page, or following the interactive exercises, will lead you through a section and on to the next section. Most pages also have a 'Back' button, which will take you to a preassigned page. To return to the page you were just on, use your browser's 'Back' button.


The modules make extensive use of hyperlinks and interactivity.

Text and buttons colored copper are clickable and will reveal information or open a new page. Text colored purple represents clickable links that provide alternative information (such as text only versions of media components) or advisory information. Clicking on mauve-colored citations opens the module's 'References and Resources' page.

Text that is bold purple represents emphasis and is not clickable. Green shading likewise represents emphasis.


Icons are used to draw the user's attention and to signify interactive and multimedia features.
