Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Design and Technology

Publication May 2019. 336pp.

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 Edexcel 1DT0 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 6-1 to 6-6 of the textbook cover each of the six specialist material categories.  These sections would complement practical classroom experience.

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

To accompany this textbook, PG Online also publishes a series of 11 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...

Great work, easily the most clear and easily accessible book I have seen for our subject.

Michael Webb. Design and Technology Teacher, Linton Village College

I received your sample copy today and took the opportunity to show it [to my outgoing] A2 students.

They said they liked the Layout and use of colour – compatible with the other textbooks they like, and they quickly found the Edward Snowden and NSA sections and were very engaged in the opposing arguments on each.

I liked the use of pseudo-code.
