Tessellating Hexagons

Stage: 3 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3

Is it true that any convex hexagon will tessellate if it has a pair of opposite sides that are equal, and three adjacent angles that add up to 360 degrees?

Floored

Stage: 3 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

A floor is covered by a tessellation of equilateral triangles, each having three equal arcs inside it. What proportion of the area of the tessellation is shaded?

problem icon

Pie Cuts

Stage: 3 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:2 Challenge Level:2

Investigate the different ways of cutting a perfectly circular pie into equal pieces using exactly 3 cuts. The cuts have to be along chords of the circle (which might be diameters).

Triangles in Circles

Stage: 3 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

How many different triangles can you make which consist of the centre point and two of the points on the edge? Can you work out each of their angles?

problem icon

Angle A

Stage: 3 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:2 Challenge Level:2

The three corners of a triangle are sitting on a circle. The angles are called Angle A, Angle B and Angle C. The dot in the middle of the circle shows the centre. The counter is measuring the size. . . .

Subtended Angles

Stage: 3 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:2 Challenge Level:2

What is the relationship between the angle at the centre and the angles at the circumference, for angles which stand on the same arc? Can you prove it?

problem icon

Pent

Stage: 4 and 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:2 Challenge Level:2

The diagram shows a regular pentagon with sides of unit length. Find all the angles in the diagram. Prove that the quadrilateral shown in red is a rhombus.
