Help your Year 12 students grow their knowledge and reinforce their learnings with the HSC Australian Food Industry homework book. This booklet will allow students to have their writing checked and assessed weekly.

The book includes 17 questions which are formatted in HSC style and cover the Australian Food Industry syllabus. A variety of key terms have been used across these questions to give students ample opportunity to practice their responses in the lead up to the exams. The benefit of this book is that the answers are not published anywhere so the students cannot simply google the sample answers. The students will be required to answer by applying their own knowledge of the content.

The homework book can be differentiated to suit the students’ needs. Alternatively, this booklet can be used for revision of the Australian Food Industry unit.
