Stating What To Do
THIS IS LEGACY MATERIAL - the science is correct but the marks no longer apply!
Get up to 8 marks just for planning what you are going to do! Here we show one way of doing it.
As with the other 3 areas of assessment, the criteria you have to meet are hierarchical - you must achieve the lower marks before you can be awarded marks higher up.
The Planning Criteria
In physics it's normally obvious what equipment you can and can't use. Also, looking up a basic scientific theory that might apply to your investigation is easy. You simply must make sure you use it. Here we look at an investigation into stretching springs.
Getting 2 marks is really easy: you just need to show that you have thought (a little!) about what you're going to do:
That really is enough to score you two marks. Hardly seems worth the effort! But what about 4 marks? That's twice as much...
