This is a brand new book that provides comprehensive yet concise coverage of all the topics and disciplines covered in the new AQA 8552 Design and Technology (9-1) specification, written and presented in a way that is accessible to teenagers and easy to teach from. It will be invaluable both as a course text and as a revision guide for students nearing the end of their course.

It is divided into neat sections covering every element of the specification. Sections 5A to 5F of the textbook cover each of the six specialist technical areas. These sections would complement practical classroom experience.

Solutions to all questions and exercises are provided in a free teacher pack available on our website.

To accompany this textbook, PG Online also publishes a series of 12 downloadable teaching units. Each topic in a unit consists of a PowerPoint presentation, teacher’s notes, worksheets, homework sheets and a final assessment test with practice questions. Each topic within a unit is expected to be taught over several lessons in a week. Units are sold as a lifetime site licence and may be loaded onto the school’s private network or VLE.
