Home Learning – Design Questions

In this section there are nine design questions, all taken from previous GCSE Examination papers. These are excellent in developing students design-thinking and skills. They can be used either as open task or as a timed design exercise. In the original examination they only really had about 18 to 20 minutes allocated, so the students had to think fast.

These can be used either as a starter or plenary, but I would recommend there main use is for home learning. I have included an open-student answer sheet, as well as a timed-student answer sheet.

This is a list of all the questions and their specification points
