1.1 Hue Difference: Trains the ability to observe and analyze small differences in colour hue and leads to the discovery of the four elementary attributes of yellowness, redness, blueness and greenness.
1.2 Nuanace Difference: Trains the ability to observe and analyze small differences in nuance and leads to the discovery of the elementary attributes of whiteness, blackness and chromaticness. 1.2 Nuance is supplied in red & green.
1.3 Elementary Colours and Attributes: Shows the six elementary colours and a number of colours close to each of these. Trains the ability to estimate the main and subsidiary attributes.
2.1 Colour Circle: Trains the ability to estimate the hues of colours and arrange the samples in a colour circle. The exercise includes samples in three characteristic nuance groups where the chromaticness, whiteness and blackness dominate.
2.2 Colour triangle: Trains the ability to estimate the nuance of colours, i.e. their whiteness, blackness and chromaticness and arrange them in a colour triangle. The triangle supplied in yellow, red, blue & green.
2.3 Training in colour analysis: An exercise in NCS colour notations. The exercise teaches how to understand the relationship between what a colour looks like and how it can be described in the colour circle and colour triangle and how it is given an NCS-notation.
3.1 Colour Areas: An excellent summarizing revision of the colour system with training in the estimation of both hue and nuance of a large number of samples. The 56 colour samples from the whole colour world represent the characteristic colour regions obtained if the colour circle is divided into 8 hue regions and the colour triangle into 7 nuance areas.

Why is green an elementary colour?
Is yellow, red and blue not the only colours? Answer - can you describe a tree with the use of yellow, red or blue? No therefore green is an elementary colour. You are in fact thinking of the primary colours for mixing being yellow, red and blue. As NCS is the international CIE system based on how you as a human being see colour one must give values as we describe colour!
What is hue?
The attribute of a chromatic colour percept expressing the degree to which it resembles one or two chromatic elementary colours. Note: - colours with the same relation between the two chromatic elementary attributes are defined as having the same hue (constant hue).
What is nuance?
Two-dimensional colour attribute which (irrespective of hue) expresses the relationship between whiteness, blackness and chromaticness in a colour percept. Note: - colours of different hues but of the same nuance are also referred to as being "equivalent" or "corresponding".
