### Shaping up with Tessellations

##### Age 7 to 14

This article describes the scope for practical exploration of tessellations both in and out of the classroom. It seems a golden opportunity to link art with maths, allowing the creative side of your. . . .

### Matching Frieze Patterns

##### Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Sort the frieze patterns into seven pairs according to the way in which the motif is repeated.

### Topkapi Palace

##### Age 7 to 14 Challenge Level:

These images are taken from the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, Turkey. Can you work out the basic unit that makes up each pattern? Can you continue the pattern? Can you see any similarities and. . . .

### Friezes

##### Age 11 to 14

Some local pupils lost a geometric opportunity recently as they surveyed the cars in the car park. Did you know that car tyres, and the wheels that they on, are a rich source of geometry?

### Combining Transformations

##### Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Does changing the order of transformations always/sometimes/never produce the same transformation?

### Decoding Transformations

##### Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

See the effects of some combined transformations on a shape. Can you describe what the individual transformations do?

### Frieze Patterns in Cast Iron

##### Age 11 to 16

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

### Arrow Arithmetic 1

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

The first part of an investigation into how to represent numbers using geometric transformations that ultimately leads us to discover numbers not on the number line.

### The Frieze Tree

##### Age 11 to 16

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

### Symmetric Trace

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

Points off a rolling wheel make traces. What makes those traces have symmetry?

### Overlaid

##### Age 7 to 16 Challenge Level:

Overlaying pentominoes can produce some effective patterns. Why not use LOGO to try out some of the ideas suggested here?

### Mirror, Mirror...

##### Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Explore the effect of reflecting in two parallel mirror lines.

### So It's Times!

##### Age 7 to 14 Challenge Level:

How will you decide which way of flipping over and/or turning the grid will give you the highest total?

### Arrow Arithmetic 3

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

How can you use twizzles to multiply and divide?

### It's Times Again

##### Age 7 to 14 Challenge Level:

Which way of flipping over and/or turning this grid will give you the highest total? You'll need to imagine where the numbers will go in this tricky task!

### Khun Phaen Escapes to Freedom

##### Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Slide the pieces to move Khun Phaen past all the guards into the position on the right from which he can escape to freedom.

### Translating Lines

##### Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Investigate what happens to the equation of different lines when you translate them. Try to predict what will happen. Explain your findings.

### Transformation Game

##### Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Why not challenge a friend to play this transformation game?

### Twizzle Arithmetic

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

Arrow arithmetic, but with a twist.

### Is There a Theorem?

##### Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Draw a square. A second square of the same size slides around the first always maintaining contact and keeping the same orientation. How far does the dot travel?

### Arrow Arithmetic 2

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

Introduces the idea of a twizzle to represent number and asks how one can use this representation to add and subtract geometrically.

### Surprising Transformations

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

I took the graph y=4x+7 and performed four transformations. Can you find the order in which I could have carried out the transformations?

### Who Is the Fairest of Them All ?

##### Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Explore the effect of combining enlargements.

### A Knight's Journey

##### Age 14 to 18

This article looks at knight's moves on a chess board and introduces you to the idea of vectors and vector addition.
