### Geometry and Gravity 1

##### Age 11 to 18

This article (the first of two) contains ideas for investigations. Space-time, the curvature of space and topology are introduced with some fascinating problems to explore.

### Geometry and Gravity 2

##### Age 11 to 18

This is the second of two articles and discusses problems relating to the curvature of space, shortest distances on surfaces, triangulations of surfaces and representation by graphs.

### Curvature of Surfaces

##### Age 16 to 18

How do we measure curvature? Find out about curvature on soccer and rugby balls and on surfaces of negative curvature like banana skins.

### Giant Holly Leaf

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

Find the perimeter and area of a holly leaf that will not lie flat (it has negative curvature with 'circles' having circumference greater than 2πr).
