Y13 Pre Release (Figure Analysis)

Hi all,

Attached are theย useful links for your figure analysis.

If you want to go away and continue the analysis that is fine, but you also have next Thursday’s double to continue this rather lengthy process! Please remember we are going to be starting potential question breakdown shortly after Easter, so you must get as much prep done as possible.

Any questions, give me a shout.

Year 13: Pre-Release Development Theories

In case you need to refer back after today’s lesson, the link to the PDF is below.

Please make sure you do refer back to the pre-release material (answer Q1 & 2 on the back of your sheets – can any of the theories be linked with development of Costa Rica, Panama or Nicaragua? Do you think any of the countries could do with using these theories to help with their level of development?)

Lesson 2 Development theories

 

 

 

It has been a while Year 13!…

An interesting article here about sustainable technological fixes to global problems.

You will be assessing sustainability of the technological fixes you have researched (so you MUST remember your printed tables on Thursday!) but here are some additional ideas you might want to research further.

Year 13 Technological Fix

Please find a series of links below that relate to Thursday’s lesson on reasons for variations in technological access. If you get the opportunity, have a read before the lesson. If not, you are in a computer room for P4 so you will have the chance to look through these then…

Y13 – Tuesday 17th Jan

Hi folks,

I’m not in school today but attached is a PowerPoint that you should use to research ‘radical technologies’ to reduce the threat of energy insecurity. You have an ICT room booked for Thursday to complete this so just initial research to take place during P3 today, please (some of these are a little old now so by all means complete your own search instead of using the links provided!)
