Matchless

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

There is a particular value of x, and a value of y to go with it, which make all five expressions equal in value, can you find that x, y pair ?

Intersections

Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

Change one equation in this pair of simultaneous equations very slightly and there is a big change in the solution. Why?

Which Is Bigger?

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Which is bigger, n+10 or 2n+3? Can you find a good method of answering similar questions?

Lap Times

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Can you find the lap times of the two cyclists travelling at constant speeds?

Which Is Cheaper?

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

When I park my car in Mathstown, there are two car parks to choose from. Can you help me to decide which one to use?

Parabolic Patterns

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.

More Parabolic Patterns

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.

Walk and Ride

Age 7 to 14 Challenge Level:

How far have these students walked by the time the teacher's car reaches them after their bus broke down?

Parabolas Again

Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

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

Fence It

Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

If you have only 40 metres of fencing available, what is the maximum area of land you can fence off?

Diamond Collector

Age 11 to 16 Challenge Level:

Collect as many diamonds as you can by drawing three straight lines.

Perpendicular Lines

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Position the lines so that they are perpendicular to each other. What can you say about the equations of perpendicular lines?

Graphical Interpretation

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

This set of resources for teachers offers interactive environments to support work on graphical interpretation at Key Stage 4.

Four on the Road

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Four vehicles travel along a road one afternoon. Can you make sense of the graphs showing their motion?

How Far Does it Move?

Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the red dot affects the distance it travels at each stage.

Speeding Up, Slowing Down

Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the red dot affects its speed at each stage.

Up and Across

Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the red dot affects its vertical and horizontal movement at each stage.

On the Road

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Four vehicles travelled on a road. What can you deduce from the times that they met?

Exploring Cubic Functions

Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

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

Ellipses

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.

Motion Sensor

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Looking at the graph - when was the person moving fastest? Slowest?

Surprising Transformations

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

I took the graph y=4x+7 and performed four transformations. Can you find the order in which I could have carried out the transformations?

Bus Stop

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Two buses leave at the same time from two towns Shipton and Veston on the same long road, travelling towards each other. At each mile along the road are milestones. The buses' speeds are constant. . . .
