Why does this fold create an angle of sixty degrees?
How does the position of the line affect the equation of the line? What can you say about the equations of parallel lines?
It is impossible to trisect an angle using only ruler and compasses but it can be done using a carpenter's square.
This interactivity allows you to sort letters of the alphabet into two groups according to different properties.
Two angles ABC and PQR are floating in a box so that AB//PQ and BC//QR. Prove that the two angles are equal.
Investigate the positions of points which have particular x and y coordinates. What do you notice?
An equilateral triangle is constructed on BC. A line QD is drawn, where Q is the midpoint of AC. Prove that AB // QD.
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.
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?
On a clock the three hands - the second, minute and hour hands - are on the same axis. How often in a 24 hour day will the second hand be parallel to either of the two other hands?
The circumcentres of four triangles are joined to form a quadrilateral. What do you notice about this quadrilateral as the dynamic image changes? Can you prove your conjecture?
A kite shaped lawn consists of an equilateral triangle ABC of side 130 feet and an isosceles triangle BCD in which BD and CD are of length 169 feet. A gardener has a motor mower which cuts strips of. . . .
