### Shuffles

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

An environment for exploring the properties of small groups.

### Spokes

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Draw three equal line segments in a unit circle to divide the circle into four parts of equal area.

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

Make five different quadrilaterals on a nine-point pegboard, without using the centre peg. Work out the angles in each quadrilateral you make. Now, what other relationships you can see?

### LOGO Challenge 11 - More on Circles

##### Stage: 3 and 4 Challenge Level:

Thinking of circles as polygons with an infinite number of sides - but how does this help us with our understanding of the circumference of circle as pi x d? This challenge investigates. . . .

### Dodecawhat

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

Follow instructions to fold sheets of A4 paper into pentagons and assemble them to form a dodecahedron. Calculate the error in the angle of the not perfectly regular pentagons you make.

### Star Gazing

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

Find the ratio of the outer shaded area to the inner area for a six pointed star and an eight pointed star.

### Two Regular Polygons

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

Two polygons fit together so that the exterior angle at each end of their shared side is 81 degrees. If both shapes now have to be regular could the angle still be 81 degrees?

### LOGO Challenge 9 - Overlapping Polygons

##### Stage: 2, 3 and 4 Challenge Level:

This LOGO challenge starts by looking at 10-sided polygons then generalises the findings to any polygon, putting particular emphasis on external angles

### The Dodecahedron

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

What are the shortest distances between the centres of opposite faces of a regular solid dodecahedron on the surface and through the middle of the dodecahedron?

### Tessellation Interactivity

##### Stage: 2, 3 and 4 Challenge Level:

An environment that enables you to investigate tessellations of regular polygons

### First Forward Into Logo 2: Polygons

##### Stage: 2, 3 and 4 Challenge Level:
