Deadline for first draft: Tuesday 8 June 2021.
Your investigation question is:
How does the River Aussonnelle change downstream?
Task 1 - Write this title down on the top of your introduction page and make it bold.
Task 2 - Now you must formulate two hypotheses that will help you to answer this question. (A hypothesis is a statement that you can test. A well written hypothesis is clear, directional and measurable).
Check out the Bradshaw Model to the right. You can use this to create your hypothesis. Examples may include:
Hypothesis: The velocity of the River Aussonnelle will increase as we move downstream.
Hypothesis: The cross sectional area of the river will increase as we move downstream.
Hypothesis: The gradient of the River Aussonnelle will decrease as we move downstream.
Task 3 - Depending on the chosen hypotheses, you are now going to need to explain the Geography theory behind each one. See the link at the top of this page.
Task 4 - Draw a sketch map of the River Aussonnelle drainage basin (see this page) and label it. Add a key, scale and title.
Task 5 - Draw a map of France and plot on the location of Paris (capital city) and Toulouse and the approximate location of the River Aussonnelle. Add a key, scale and title.
Task 6 - State the relationship between the coursework and the IGCSE Geography syllabus. Click on the syllabus link above to get the exact part of our course that it links to. You can paste this image into your work if you like.
