Exploring Cubic Functions

Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

Quadratic graphs are very familiar, but what patterns can you explore with cubics?

More Parabolic Patterns

Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

The illustration shows the graphs of twelve functions. Three of them have equations y=x^2, x=y^2 and x=-y^2+2. Find the equations of all the other graphs.

Mathsjam Jars

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Imagine different shaped vessels being filled. Can you work out what the graphs of the water level should look like?

Parabolic Patterns

Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

The illustration shows the graphs of fifteen functions. Two of them have equations y=x^2 and y=-(x-4)^2. Find the equations of all the other graphs.

Guessing the Graph

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Can you suggest a curve to fit some experimental data? Can you work out where the data might have come from?

What's That Graph?

Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

Can you work out which processes are represented by the graphs?

Maths Filler

Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Imagine different shaped vessels being filled. Can you work out what the graphs of the water level should look like?

Up and Across

Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the dot affects its vertical and horizontal movement at each stage.

How Far Does it Move?

Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the red dot affects the distance it travels at each stage.

Bio Graphs

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

What biological growth processes can you fit to these graphs?

Maths Filler 2

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Can you draw the height-time chart as this complicated vessel fills with water?

Back Fitter

Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

10 graphs of experimental data are given. Can you use a spreadsheet to find algebraic graphs which match them closely, and thus discover the formulae most likely to govern the underlying processes?

Immersion

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Various solids are lowered into a beaker of water. How does the water level rise in each case?

Fill Me Up

Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Can you sketch graphs to show how the height of water changes in different containers as they are filled?

Speeding Up, Slowing Down

Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the red dot affects its speed at each stage.
