Classroom teaching resources for students, addressing the relevant content of all four Awarding organisations' Design and Technology GCSE specifications. This will also be useful to students enrolled other technical courses including Engineering.

This contains six PowerPoint presentations with a range of summary information for students to help them understand and apply their learning in product analysis, making design decisions and selecting and using materials.

Each of the five material areas looks at the characteristics, properties, manufacturing and production processes, including finishing, joining and bonding and environmental impacts, as well as links to useful websites and places to visit. Students are encouraged to consider the appropriate use of each material in design decisions, taking into account stock forms and sizes, costs, strengths and aesthetics.

Also included is the classroom teaching resource: ‘Materials and their properties’ which provides an introduction to choosing and using materials, materials in product analysis and links to the GCSE curriculum. It has links to other subject areas and builds upon prior learning in the areas of technical knowledge and making at KS3.

“I know we would use something like this. The depth of information is sufficient and the slides could easily be used alongside actual examples of materials.”
