C6 Skin and hygiene (answer sheet)

Answer sheet:
For the student experimentation instructions of the same name.


The answer sheet contains sample answers to all questions asked in the student experimentation instructions. In some cases, the answers are very short, often only in the form of key words. Depending on the learning objective, they can be augmented and enlarged upon with additional material from textbooks or Internet research.
Likewise, the answer sheet will be elaborate on the analyses for the individual subexperiments, but only in cases where experience shows that there could be difficulties.

You will find more detailed information in the related experimentation instructions "C6 Skin and hygiene (student instructions)", which are available on the media portal of the Siemens Stiftung.
