Similarly So

Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

ABCD is a square. P is the midpoint of AB and is joined to C. A line from D perpendicular to PC meets the line at the point Q. Prove AQ = AD.

Angle Trisection

Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

It is impossible to trisect an angle using only ruler and compasses but it can be done using a carpenter's square.

Parallel Lines

Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

How does the position of the line affect the equation of the line? What can you say about the equations of parallel lines?

Parallel Universe

Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

An equilateral triangle is constructed on BC. A line QD is drawn, where Q is the midpoint of AC. Prove that AB // QD.

Bi-cyclics

Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

Two circles intersect at A and B. Points C and D move round one circle. CA and DB cut the other circle at E and F. What do you notice about the line segments CD and EF?

Lawnmower

Stage: 4 Challenge Level:
