Like a Circle in a Spiral

Stage: 2, 3 and 4 Challenge Level:

A cheap and simple toy with lots of mathematics. Can you interpret the images that are produced? Can you predict the pattern that will be produced using different wheels?

Making Spirals

Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Can you make a spiral for yourself? Explore some different ways to create your own spiral pattern and explore differences between different spirals.

Speeding Up, Slowing Down

Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the red dot affects its speed at each stage.

Up and Across

Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the red dot affects its vertical and horizontal movement at each stage.

Triangle Inequality

Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

ABC is an equilateral triangle and P is a point in the interior of the triangle. We know that AP = 3cm and BP = 4cm. Prove that CP must be less than 10 cm.

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

Two circles of equal radius touch at P. One circle is fixed whilst the other moves, rolling without slipping, all the way round. How many times does the moving coin revolve before returning to P?

How Far Does it Move?

Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the red dot affects the distance it travels at each stage.

Where Am I?

Stage: 3 and 4 Challenge Level:

From the information you are asked to work out where the picture was taken. Is there too much information? How accurate can your answer be?
