How many different triangles can you make on a circular pegboard that has nine pegs?

Can you make a right-angled triangle on this peg-board by joining up three points round the edge?

What is the relationship between the angle at the centre and the angles at the circumference, for angles which stand on the same arc? Can you prove it?

Can you find triangles on a 9-point circle? Can you work out their angles?

We can show that (x + 1)² = x² + 2x + 1 by considering the area of an (x + 1) by (x + 1) square. Show in a similar way that (x + 2)² = x² + 4x + 4

Can you find the pairs that represent the same amount of money?

Can you find a relationship between the number of dots on the circle and the number of steps that will ensure that all points are hit?
