Assessment

LO 1

Technological Processes and Skills

The learner will be able to apply technological processes and skills ethically and responsibly using appropriate information and communication technologies.

We know this when the learner:

1.1 finds out about the background context (e.g. people, environment, nature of the need) when given a problem, need or opportunity and lists the advantages and disadvantages that a technological solution might bring to people;

1.2 finds out about existing products relevant to a problem, need or opportunity, and identifies some design aspects (e.g. who it is for, what it looks like, what it is for, what it is made of);

1.3 performs, where appropriate, scientific investigations about concepts relevant to a problem, need or opportunity using science process skills:

  • planning investigations;
  • conducting investigations;
  • processing and interpreting data;
  • evaluating and communicating findings;
  • writes or communicates, with assistance, a short and clear statement (design brief) related to a given problem, need or opportunity that demonstrates some understanding of the technological purposes of the solution;

1.5 suggests and records at least two alternative solutions to the problem, need or opportunity that link to the design brief and to given specifications and constraints (e.g. people, purpose, environment);

1.6 chooses one of these solutions, giving reasons for the choice, and develops the idea further;

1.7 outlines a plan that shows the steps for making, including drawing or sketches of main parts;

1.8 uses suitable tools and materials to make products by measuring, marking out, cutting or separating, shaping or forming, joining or combining, and finishing the chosen material;

1.9 works neatly and safely, ensuring minimum waste of material;

1.10 evaluates, with assistance, the product according to the design brief and given specifications and constraints (e.g. people, purpose, environment), and suggests improvements and modifications if necessary;

1.11 evaluates the plan of action followed and suggests improvements and modifications if necessary;

1.12 produces labelled two-dimensional drawings enhanced with colour where appropriate.

LO 2

Technological Knowlede and Understanding

The learner will be able to understand and apply relevant technological knowledge ethically and responsibly.

We know this when the learner:

2.3 demonstrates knowledge and understanding of how to use energy sources to power mechanical systems in order to make a product move in some way.

LO 3

Technology, Society and the Environment

The learner will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships between science, technology, society and the environment.

We know this when the learner:

3.1 recognises how products and technologies have been adapted from other times and cultures;

3.2 identifies possible positive and negative effects of scientific developments or technological products on the quality of people’s lives and/or the health environment.

Memorandum

1.

The lengths of limbs vary and therefore there were no consistent lengths. Dealers can therefore adversely affect each other on purpose.

2.

12 team

The answers for the following five lengths are determined by the length of each individual learner

3 m

own discretion

3.

Answers will depend on the individual answers obtained and processed.

4.

1. a tape on which measurements are indicated, with which certain lengths can be determined

2. an apparatus with which lengths with arcs, e.g. an athletics track, can be measured out

3. an apparatus that is calibrated according to the international linear measure of 1m

4. a flat or round stick, used to draw straight lines, usually also marked with units of measurement

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
