Each topic begins with an overview on how it is used in the real world, giving you some great introductory discussions you can have with students to get them engaged. Each prac that follows is explained in detail and also has solutions on what should have happened as well as why at the end of each topic. As someone with such little physics knowledge, the explanations included were very clear and helped me solidify my own knowledge of the content before attempting it in class.
However, these pracs aren't well designed to be photocopied and given straight to students. They aren't written up nicely like pre-made worksheets. So some work would be needed to make use of the activities for students.
In short: a great resource if you are a bit lost and need some basic ideas of how to start.
My only caution is that you need to have an understanding of the mathematics of physics first. This may not be enough of a text to stand on its own for a non-science, non-math person.
