Go on a vector walk and determine which points on the walk are
closest to the origin.

##### Age 11 to 18 Challenge Level:

are somewhat mundane they do pose a demanding challenge in terms of
'elegant' LOGO procedures. This problem considers the eight
semi-regular tessellations which pose a demanding challenge in
terms of. . . .

##### Age 11 to 16 Challenge Level:

Three examples of particular tilings of the plane, namely those
where - NOT all corners of the tile are vertices of the tiling. You
might like to produce an elegant program to replicate one or all. . . .

##### Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

Triangle ABC has equilateral triangles drawn on its edges. Points
P, Q and R are the centres of the equilateral triangles. What can
you prove about the triangle PQR?

##### Age 11 to 16 Challenge Level:

Using LOGO, can you construct elegant procedures that will draw
this family of 'floor coverings'?

##### Age 11 to 16 Challenge Level:

Can you recreate these designs? What are the basic units? What
movement is required between each unit? Some elegant use of
procedures will help - variables not essential.

##### Age 11 to 16 Challenge Level:

Semi-regular tessellations combine two or more different regular polygons to fill the plane. Can you find all the semi-regular tessellations?

##### Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Using the interactivity, can you make a regular hexagon from yellow triangles the same size as a regular hexagon made from green triangles ?

##### Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

If the yellow equilateral triangle is taken as the unit for area,
what size is the hole ?

##### Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

L triominoes can fit together to make larger versions of themselves. Is every size possible to make in this way?
