Back Fitter

Age 14 to 16 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?

Interpolating Polynomials

Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Given a set of points (x,y) with distinct x values, find a polynomial that goes through all of them, then prove some results about the existence and uniqueness of these polynomials.

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?

Rational Request

Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Can you make a curve to match my friend's requirements?

Graphic Biology

Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Several graphs of the sort occurring commonly in biology are given. How many processes can you map to each graph?

Lennard Jones Potential

Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Investigate why the Lennard-Jones potential gives a good approximate explanation for the behaviour of atoms at close ranges

Curve Fitter 2

Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

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