Step back and reflect! This article reviews techniques such as
substitution and change of coordinates which enable us to exploit
underlying structures to crack problems.

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

Observe symmetries and engage the power of substitution to solve
complicated equations.

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

Prove that the graph of f(x) = x^3 - 6x^2 +9x +1 has rotational
symmetry. Do graphs of all cubics have rotational symmetry?

##### Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

Here is a pattern composed of the graphs of 14 parabolas. Can you
find their equations?

##### Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

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

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

In this 'mesh' of sine graphs, one of the graphs is the graph of
the sine function. Find the equations of the other graphs to
reproduce the pattern.

##### 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.

##### 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.

##### Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

Here is a pattern for you to experiment with using graph drawing
software. Find the equations of the graphs in the pattern.

##### 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?

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

Use functions to create minimalist versions of works of art.

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

Draw graphs of the sine and modulus functions and explain the
humps.
