Changing Areas, Changing Perimeters

Age 11 to 14Challenge Level

How can you change the area of a shape but keep its perimeter the same? How can you change the perimeter but keep the area the same?

Perimeter Challenge

Age 11 to 14Challenge Level

Can you deduce the perimeters of the shapes from the information given?

Pick's Theorem

Age 14 to 16Challenge Level

Polygons drawn on square dotty paper have dots on their perimeter (p) and often internal (i) ones as well. Find a relationship between p, i and the area of the polygons.

Some(?) of the Parts

Age 14 to 16Challenge Level

A circle touches the lines OA, OB and AB where OA and OB are perpendicular. Show that the diameter of the circle is equal to the perimeter of the triangle

Coins on a Plate

Age 11 to 14Challenge Level

Points A, B and C are the centres of three circles, each one of which touches the other two. Prove that the perimeter of the triangle ABC is equal to the diameter of the largest circle.

On the Edge
