The final unit in the series explores the making principles in Section 3.3.7 – 3.3.11 of the 8552 specification. The first lessons analyse the functional need, cost and availability of materials required for prototype development, using appropriate tolerances when working. Material management skills including marking out are covered in Lesson 3 before looking at the use of specialist tools and equipment in the penultimate lesson. The final lesson covers the surface treatments and finishes that can be applied to materials to improve functionality and aesthetics.

What people say...

I get offered probably every IGCSE, OCR and AQA resource pack out there and have seen most. I can tell you without doubt yours are the best. Your resources are head and shoulders above the rest.

Kieren Reynolds. CAS Master teacher and teacher, Henry Beaufort School

Excellent resources and value for money. A lifesaver for me and also for my new member of staff who is a non-specialist.

Mr Phil Andrews. Head of Design and Technology, St Joseph's Catholic High School
