REVISION GUIDES (AS and A2 units)
These full-colour revision guides help students prepare for their GCE AS and A2 Applied Science examinations. They are arranged in double-page spreads with key aspects in easy-to-read boxes, exam-style questions and other activities to aid learning, such as crosswords and diagram labelling. AS books are approximately 40 pages long, A2 books are approximately 72 pages long. Here's a sample double-page spread: AQA Unit (revision guide).
PORTFOLIO AND SUPPORTING ACTIVITIES (AS units)
By following the Portfolio activities, students can meet all the assessment requirements of the internally assessed units. Supporting activities reinforce learning requirements for all externally assessed units. Activities are specific to each Unit. Each activity has a front Sheet (which gives the appropriate specification links), an introduction (which links the activity to the workplace), a briefing (describing the nature of the activity), one or more standard procedures, techniques (when required), teaching guidance and technical information. Please note: Portfolio and supporting activities are supplied as photocopiable PDFs - we will email details to access the files once the order has been placed. Here are a few sample pages: AQA Unit 2 (supporting activities) and AQA Unit 3 (portfolio activities).
FREE RESOURCES (A2 units)
4science worked with Nuffield Curriculum Centre to write a variety of activities which are useful for the delivery and assessment of AQA and OCR GCE A2 Applied Science. We created a a free CD-ROM. Unfortunately, there are no discs left ... but we have put the contents online here.
