Plane 1 contains points A, B and C and plane 2 contains points A
and B. Find all the points on plane 2 such that the two planes are
A quadrilateral changes shape with the edge lengths constant. Show
the scalar product of the diagonals is constant. If the diagonals
are perpendicular in one position are they always perpendicular?
It is impossible to trisect an angle using only ruler and compasses
but it can be done using a carpenter's square.
ABCD is a square. P is the midpoint of AB and is joined to C. A line from D perpendicular to PC meets the line at the point Q. Prove AQ = AD.
Take any point P inside an equilateral triangle. Draw PA, PB and PC
from P perpendicular to the sides of the triangle where A, B and C
are points on the sides. Prove that PA + PB + PC is a constant.
The circumcentres of four triangles are joined to form a
quadrilateral. What do you notice about this quadrilateral as the
dynamic image changes? Can you prove your conjecture?
Can you decide whether two lines are perpendicular or not? Can you do this without drawing them?
P is a point inside a square ABCD such that PA= 1, PB = 2 and PC =
3. How big is angle APB ?
What is the shortest distance through the middle of a dodecahedron between the centres of two opposite faces?
X is a moveable point on the hypotenuse, and P and Q are the feet
of the perpendiculars from X to the sides of a right angled
triangle. What position of X makes the length of PQ a minimum?
Given any three non intersecting circles in the plane find another
circle or straight line which cuts all three circles orthogonally.
Find the area of the shaded region created by the two overlapping
triangles in terms of a and b?
Position the lines so that they are perpendicular to each other. What can you say about the equations of perpendicular lines?
The centre of the larger circle is at the midpoint of one side of an equilateral triangle and the circle touches the other two sides of the triangle. A smaller circle touches the larger circle and. . . .
