### Elastic Maths

##### Stage: 4 and 5

How do you write a computer program that creates the illusion of stretching elastic bands between pegs of a Geoboard? The answer contains some surprising mathematics.

### Right Angles

##### Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

Can you make a right-angled triangle on this peg-board by joining up three points round the edge?

### Pick's Theorem

##### Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

Polygons drawn on square dotty paper have dots on their perimeter (p) and often internal (i) ones as well. Find a relationship between p, i and the area of the polygons.

### Subtended Angles

##### Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

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?

### Pinned Squares

##### Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

The diagram shows a 5 by 5 geoboard with 25 pins set out in a square array. Squares are made by stretching rubber bands round specific pins. What is the total number of squares that can be made on a. . . .

### Triangles in Circles
