Thinking of circles as polygons with an infinite number of sides -
but how does this help us with our understanding of the
circumference of circle as pi x d? This challenge investigates. . . .
This LOGO challenge starts by looking at 10-sided polygons then
generalises the findings to any polygon, putting particular
emphasis on external angles
This is the second in a twelve part introduction to Logo for beginners. In this part you learn to draw polygons.
A very mathematical light - what can you see?
Find the ratio of the outer shaded area to the inner area for a six
pointed star and an eight pointed star.
Explain how the thirteen pieces making up the regular hexagon shown
in the diagram can be re-assembled to form three smaller regular
hexagons congruent to each other.
Given a 2 by 2 by 2 skeletal cube with one route `down' the cube.
How many routes are there from A to B?
What shape and size of drinks mat is best for flipping and catching?
Make five different quadrilaterals on a nine-point pegboard,
without using the centre peg. Work out the angles in each
quadrilateral you make. Now, what other relationships you can see?
Two polygons fit together so that the exterior angle at each end of
their shared side is 81 degrees. If both shapes now have to be
regular could the angle still be 81 degrees?
Follow instructions to fold sheets of A4 paper into pentagons and assemble them to form a dodecahedron. Calculate the error in the angle of the not perfectly regular pentagons you make.
An environment that enables you to investigate tessellations of
