Unit 2 My Family & My Home
In this unit candidates will learn about some of the science used by scientists to help to look after our families, construct our homes and produce and maintain the property within our homes.
This unit is assessed by a one-hour written paper, which is worth 25% of the overall marks for the specification.
Application of knowledge and understanding gained in discussing, evaluating and suggesting implications of data and evidence is also assessed in the written paper. Areas that could be covered are highlighted at the end of each context.
Any formulae and equations in this unit that candidates may need to be able to answer the questions in the external assessment will be given on an equation sheet. Candidates will be expected to choose the appropriate information from the equation sheet to answer the question.
