Ding Dong Bell Interactive

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Try ringing hand bells for yourself with interactive versions of Diagram 2 (Plain Hunt Minimus) and Diagram 3 described in the article 'Ding Dong Bell'.

Footprints

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Make a footprint pattern using only reflections.

Parallel Parking

Stage: 4

Scientist Bryan Rickett has a vision of the future - and it is one in which self-parking cars prowl the tarmac plains, hunting down suitable parking spots and manoeuvring elegantly into them.

Rots and Refs

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Follow hints using a little coordinate geometry, plane geometry and trig to see how matrices are used to work on transformations of the plane.

Frieze Patterns in Cast Iron

Stage: 3 and 4

A gallery of beautiful photos of cast ironwork friezes in Australia with a mathematical discussion of the classification of frieze patterns.

Paint Rollers for Frieze Patterns.

Stage: 3 and 4

Proofs that there are only seven frieze patterns involve complicated group theory. The symmetries of a cylinder provide an easier approach.

The Use of Mathematics in Computer Games

Stage: 5

An account of how mathematics is used in computer games including geometry, vectors, transformations, 3D graphics, graph theory and simulations.

The Frieze Tree

Stage: 3 and 4

Patterns that repeat in a line are strangely interesting. How many types are there and how do you tell one type from another?

Curve Fitter 2

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Can you construct a cubic equation with a certain distance between its turning points?

Take a Square

Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

Cut off three right angled isosceles triangles to produce a pentagon. With two lines, cut the pentagon into three parts which can be rearranged into another square.

Stage: 4 and 5 Challenge Level:

This task develops knowledge of transformation of graphs. By framing and asking questions a member of the team has to find out which mathematical function they have chosen.

Sine Problem

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

In this 'mesh' of sine graphs, one of the graphs is the graph of the sine function. Find the equations of the other graphs to reproduce the pattern.

Grouping Transformations

Stage: 3, 4 and 5

An introduction to groups using transformations, following on from the October 2006 Stage 3 problems.

Reflect Again

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

Follow hints to investigate the matrix which gives a reflection of the plane in the line y=tanx. Show that the combination of two reflections in intersecting lines is a rotation.
