- Select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks
- Select from and use a wider range of materials and components, including construction materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their functional properties and aesthetic qualities
- Understand and use mechanical systems in their products (for example, gears, pulleys, cams, levers and linkages)
