Rich narratives, learning activities and practical tasks designed to engage students in the subject matter and to equip them with the key skills required to complete AOS 3, a practical investigation, will be provided. Study aids that help students explicitly apply skills relevant to AOS3, as they progress through AOS 1 & 2, will be suggested. Possible assessment tasks will be explored and teaching resources to support the introduction of these tasks in your classroom will be provided along with details for the purchase of consumables.
