Challenge Level

Each day Pat takes the dog for a walk.

You can see them on the interactivity below.

Try moving Pat and the dog using the purple arrow keys. The graph shows how far Pat is walking from the gate after a certain amount of time.

What happens to the graph once Pat gets back to the gate?

Try to reproduce these graphs:

Can you tell a story that would result in each of the graphs above?

Investigate how this pattern of squares continues. You could measure lengths, areas and angles.

During the third hour after midnight the hands on a clock point in the same direction (so one hand is over the top of the other). At what time, to the nearest second, does this happen?

How far have these students walked by the time the teacher's car reaches them after their bus broke down?
