A collection of 24 differentiated worksheets for a variety of Design and Technology topics. They were initially used as homework sheets but they can be used in lessons. Aimed mainly at Key stage 3 but some may be suitable for KS4.
- tools and equipment
- briefs and specifications
- motion, levers and linkages
KS3 project based on mechanisms and motion for designing and making a whirligig. Includes a mini project for designing a greetings card with a mechanism to enhance the learning of motion and mechanical systems.
Includes photographs of step-by-step manufacturing of a prototype and stages of the design process to design and make a whirligig.
Risk assessment included, relating to BS 4163:2007 Code of Practice.
Over 100 slides and an accompanying 16 page workbook to aid delivery of the electrical and electronic systems sections of the new AQA GCSE Engineering specification and the new AQA GCSE Design and Technology specification. Includes slides, animations and questions on: power supplies, system diagrams, input and output devices, process devices (timers, counters, comparators, logic, microcontrollers), transistors.
Exemplar material for writing design specifications and communicating design ideas.
Slides and posters with examples of design specifications, design drawings and communication techniques from a range of levels. Can be used as independent reference, guidance or target setting.
An Excel mark book that allows you to track students' progress, calculates grades relative to percentage outcomes for projects. There is a front tracking sheet and ten spate project/topic sheets. Each project/topic page has space for entering seven different marks and will return a topic percentage and grade, which will also be displayed on the tracking sheet. Includes a random name generator, pages for ten separate projects/topics to be recorded, a front page displaying tracking and an average grade as the year progresses.
There is a tab that gives grade boundaries but please be aware that these are estimates and will vary for different subjects, boards and year.
AQA GCSE Engineering: checklist, grade descriptors and easy to follow assessment criteria for controlled assessment. Booklet includes feedback table for each element of controlled assessment (can be modified).
A mock exam paper based on the style of exam from AQA with questions based on 2017 exam topic. Includes answers and mark scheme.
This is basically a modified version of the 2016 version I made, with a change to the exam theme. If you bought the 2016 version you may not want to buy this one.
