Summary

This unit is subdivided into five topics plus an end-of-unit assessment spread across roughly six lessons. It is a theoretical unit covering the latest Edexcel Design and Technology specification 1DT0.

In this unit, the sources, origins and properties of polymers are covered in the first lesson, along with the processes of fractional distillation and cracking. Lesson two concentrates on the physical and working properties of polymers and material selection and stock forms are explored in lesson three. Lessons four and five concentrate on commercial cutting, forming and processing techniques in manufacture and school-based processes. Finishing techniques, quality control and joining polymer adhesives are also covered as well as reinforcing students’ understanding of the properties of the different types of polymers available.

In the final lesson students sit an assessment test comprising questions similar to those found on the GCSE exam paper.
