I made this PDF resource specifically for the GCSE Product Design exam. The resource includes the vital topics I selected condensed into 14 A4 pages. I have printed this resource and given it to my Year 11 group who are completing the AQA exam board but this is also extremely beneficial to EDEXCEL and OCR. The resource opens with 10 useful tips on how to be successful in the exam.
I then cover a lot of packaging as "Charitable Collection Boxes" is the 2016 preliminary Material.
I have then then covered the following topics with video URL's included which explain specific topics and processes:
Properties of Metals
Finishes to Metals
Plastic processes-Injection Moulding, Compression Moulding, Blow Moulding, Extrusion Moulding,
Packaging- Functions, die cutting, Blister Packaging
Sustainability in Design
Quality assurance/Quality Control
Anthropometrics and Ergonomics
Technology Push and Market Pull
Design and Society
I hope you find this useful!
