Muggles Magic

Stage: 3 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

You can move the 4 pieces of the jigsaw and fit them into both outlines. Explain what has happened to the missing one unit of area.

Lying and Cheating

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

Follow the instructions and you can take a rectangle, cut it into 4 pieces, discard two small triangles, put together the remaining two pieces and end up with a rectangle the same size. Try it!

Parallel Lines

Stage: 3 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

How does the position of the line affect the equation of the line? What can you say about the equations of parallel lines?

problem icon

Perpendicular Lines

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

Position the lines so that they are perpendicular to each other. What can you say about the equations of perpendicular lines?

Muggles, Logo and Gradients

Stage: 3, 4 and 5

Logo helps us to understand gradients of lines and why Muggles Magic is not magic but mathematics. See the problem Muggles magic.

Translating Lines

Stage: 3 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

Investigate what happens to the equation of different lines when you translate them. Try to predict what will happen. Explain your findings.

problem icon

Reflecting Lines

Stage: 3 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

Investigate what happens to the equations of different lines when you reflect them in one of the axes. Try to predict what will happen. Explain your findings.
