  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

Unit 2 Area A1 Investigation Companion: Religion & Science: Origins of the World

Debates in religion and science are often portrayed simplistically in the media, while academic texts are less accessible. This guide strikes the perfect pitch for AS students, introducing them to the key issues and debates in bite-sized chunks.

Concise and comprehensive coverage gives students a firm grounding in key debates, then inspires and challenges them to investigate the issues further. Use as a classroom resource or independent study guide.

  • Balanced & up-to-date survey equips students to develop & defend their own opinion
  • ‘In a Nutshell’ boxes summarise key debates and thinkers
  • Students engage with the material through Key Questions
  • Structured ‘Further Investigation’ tasks for self-study

Plus!

  • Glossary of key terms
  • Writing frame for exam answers
Focuses on the origins of humanity & the universe. Chapters include: ‘Science versus religion’, ‘Criticisms of scientific naturalism’, ‘How old is the earth?’, ‘Evolution’, ‘Intelligent Design’

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4741)
"Excellent resource - especially in regards to the level of detail and inclusion of so many theories and key people. The information was presented clearly in structured paragraphs and subheadings and I can see this being a valuable resource for a-level students who are on target for B/A because it really challenges them to think quite critically about how compatible science and religious theories of the origins of humanity can be... I particularly liked the level of detail, the clear structure/subheadings and the useful links at the bottom of the page. I also felt that the introduction and sample questions would really help students understand what was to be expected of them in an exam and what the marker is looking for... the educational value fo this resource is extremely high because it also encourages students to be proactive and look at other links/books which may help them... Matches the specification very well because you have covered all material in excellent detail and in the introduction and sample questions, you have clearly explained the expectations of the exam board and how they set questions." — C Allen, RE Teacher & Independent Reviewer
