### Slippage

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

A ladder 3m long rests against a wall with one end a short distance from its base. Between the wall and the base of a ladder is a garden storage box 1m tall and 1m high. What is the maximum distance. . . .

### Triangle Incircle Iteration

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

Start with any triangle T1 and its inscribed circle. Draw the triangle T2 which has its vertices at the points of contact between the triangle T1 and its incircle. Now keep repeating this. . . .

### Infinite Continued Fractions

##### Stage: 5

In this article we are going to look at infinite continued fractions - continued fractions that do not terminate.

### Rain or Shine

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Predict future weather using the probability that tomorrow is wet given today is wet and the probability that tomorrow is wet given that today is dry.

### The Golden Ratio, Fibonacci Numbers and Continued Fractions.

##### Stage: 4

An iterative method for finding the value of the Golden Ratio with explanations of how this involves the ratios of Fibonacci numbers and continued fractions.

### V-P Cycles

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Form a sequence of vectors by multiplying each vector (using vector products) by a constant vector to get the next one in the seuence(like a GP). What happens?

### Peaches in General

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

It's like 'Peaches Today, Peaches Tomorrow' but interestingly generalized.

### Difference Dynamics Discussion

##### Stage: 5

This article discusses what happens, and why, if you generate chains of sequences getting the next sequence from the differences between the adjacent terms in the sequence before it, eg (7, 2, 8, 3). . . .

### Weekly Challenge 48: Quorum-sensing

##### Stage: 4 Short Challenge Level:

This problem explores the biology behind Rudolph's glowing red nose.

### First Forward Into Logo 1: Square Five

##### Stage: 2, 3 and 4 Challenge Level:

A Short introduction to using Logo. This is the first in a twelve part series.

### Difference Dynamics

##### Stage: 4 and 5 Challenge Level:

Take three whole numbers. The differences between them give you three new numbers. Find the differences between the new numbers and keep repeating this. What happens?

### Stretching Fractions

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

Imagine a strip with a mark somewhere along it. Fold it in the middle so that the bottom reaches back to the top. Stetch it out to match the original length. Now where's the mark?

### Recent Developments on S.P. Numbers

##### Stage: 5

Take a number, add its digits then multiply the digits together, then multiply these two results. If you get the same number it is an SP number.

### Dalmatians

##### Stage: 4 and 5 Challenge Level:

Investigate the sequences obtained by starting with any positive 2 digit number (10a+b) and repeatedly using the rule 10a+b maps to 10b-a to get the next number in the sequence.

### First Forward Into Logo 10: Count up - Count Down

##### Stage: 3, 4 and 5 Challenge Level:

What happens when a procedure calls itself?

### Route to Root

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

A sequence of numbers x1, x2, x3, ... starts with x1 = 2, and, if you know any term xn, you can find the next term xn+1 using the formula: xn+1 = (xn + 3/xn)/2 . Calculate the first six terms of this. . . .

### Climbing Powers

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

$2\wedge 3\wedge 4$ could be $(2^3)^4$ or $2^{(3^4)}$. Does it make any difference? For both definitions, which is bigger: $r\wedge r\wedge r\wedge r\dots$ where the powers of $r$ go on for ever, or. . . .

### Try to Win

##### Stage: 5

Solve this famous unsolved problem and win a prize. Take a positive integer N. If even, divide by 2; if odd, multiply by 3 and add 1. Iterate. Prove that the sequence always goes to 4,2,1,4,2,1...

### Spirostars

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

A spiropath is a sequence of connected line segments end to end taking different directions. The same spiropath is iterated. When does it cycle and when does it go on indefinitely?

### Sums and Products of Digits and SP Numbers

##### Stage: 5

This article explores the search for SP numbers, finding the few that exist and the proof that there are no more.

### Stringing it Out

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

Explore the transformations and comment on what you find.
