A circle is inscribed in an equilateral triangle. Smaller circles touch it and the sides of the triangle, the process continuing indefinitely. What is the sum of the areas of all the circles?
Can you find the missing length?
Prove Pythagoras' Theorem using enlargements and scale factors.
Explore the relationships between different paper sizes.
The points P, Q, R and S are the midpoints of the edges of a convex quadrilateral. What do you notice about the quadrilateral PQRS as the convex quadrilateral changes?
Using a ruler, pencil and compasses only, it is possible to construct a square inside any triangle so that all four vertices touch the sides of the triangle.
L triominoes can fit together to make larger versions of themselves. Is every size possible to make in this way?
Triangle ABC is equilateral. D, the midpoint of BC, is the centre of the semi-circle whose radius is R which touches AB and AC, as well as a smaller circle with radius r which also touches AB and AC. . . .
The first part of an investigation into how to represent numbers using geometric transformations that ultimately leads us to discover numbers not on the number line.
How can you use twizzles to multiply and divide?
Introduces the idea of a twizzle to represent number and asks how one can use this representation to add and subtract geometrically.
Arrow arithmetic, but with a twist.
