Hello,
So I realised there isn’t many resources for maths specific questions in A level product design. I was just wondering if anyone has a collection of maths specific exam questions that would be good for practice.

Thank you.

Really?
I’m doing AQA and about 20-15% is maths questions. They are generally geometry questions such as find out the length of x if you have this other length and these other angles.

I’m doing edexcel DT and we just did a mock with like a 7 marker to calculate the volume of ABS plastic required to fill a section of a phone case by using curved edges it’s really really hard. I regret doing dt

Is this product design or resistant materials? I have never once calculated anything, then again i did my GCSE PD in 2015 and my A-level PD in 2017 so the spec may have changed

Yeah there is a new spec and it’s combined RM and Graphic with more business science and maths in it

Hey I’m also doing Edexcel, how are you finding the past papers? I feel like the mark schemes are so limited in my opinion
