Seeing is Believing

In this feature, we have chosen some resources from the Seeing is Believing pathway on wild.maths.org.

Some mathematical results can be proved beautifully with just a simple diagram. We invite you to draw your own diagrams and use images to discover relationships and make connections.

Here's how you can send your solutions to these problems.
