AQA GCSE (9-1) Design and Technology

This book has been approved by AQA.

Publication date: 5th May 2017. 304pp.

The book is available in printed paperback format, or as a digital subscription edition

This is a complete text that provides detailed and 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 of which at least 1-2 should be studied in order to ensure complete coverage. These sections would complement practical classroom experience.

A short list of errata is available to download here.

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.

What people say...

They were incredibly supportive when I requested support materials whilst awaiting on a pre-release, very efficient. The bulk resource buy has saved my department hours and hours of planning time with the new specification, alleviating a lot of stress.

Joanna Bond. Design and Technology teacher, The Romsey School

The PowerPoints were thorough and detailed and helped my knowledge of the subject as a non specialist.

Thomas Fincham. Science teacher, Lutterworth College
