Make a functional window display which will both satisfy the manager and make sense to the shoppers

### Scientific Curves

##### Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Can you sketch these difficult curves, which have uses in mathematical modelling?

### Power Up

##### Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Show without recourse to any calculating aid that 7^{1/2} + 7^{1/3} + 7^{1/4} < 7 and 4^{1/2} + 4^{1/3} + 4^{1/4} > 4 . Sketch the graph of f(x) = x^{1/2} + x^{1/3} + x^{1/4} -x

### Fractional Calculus II

##### Age 16 to 18

Here explore some ideas of how the definitions and methods of calculus change if you integrate or differentiate n times when n is not a whole number.

### Calculus Countdown

##### Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Can you hit the target functions using a set of input functions and a little calculus and algebra?

### Operating Machines

##### Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

What functions can you make using the function machines RECIPROCAL and PRODUCT and the operator machines DIFF and INT?
