##### Age 14 to 16Challenge Level

In this problem we are faced with an apparently easy area problem, but it has gone horribly wrong! What happened?

### Which Is Cheaper?

##### Age 14 to 16Challenge 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?

##### Age 14 to 16Challenge Level

A 1 metre cube has one face on the ground and one face against a wall. A 4 metre ladder leans against the wall and just touches the cube. How high is the top of the ladder above the ground?

### Up and Across

##### Age 11 to 14Challenge Level

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

### How Far Does it Move?

##### Age 11 to 14Challenge 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.

### Snookered

##### Age 14 to 18Challenge Level

In a snooker game the brown ball was on the lip of the pocket but it could not be hit directly as the black ball was in the way. How could it be potted by playing the white ball off a cushion?

### Translating Lines

##### Age 11 to 14Challenge Level

Investigate what happens to the equation of different lines when you translate them. Try to predict what will happen. Explain your findings.

### At Right Angles

##### Age 14 to 16Challenge Level

Can you decide whether two lines are perpendicular or not? Can you do this without drawing them?

### How Steep Is the Slope?

##### Age 11 to 14Challenge Level

On the grid provided, we can draw lines with different gradients. How many different gradients can you find? Can you arrange them in order of steepness?

### Surprising Transformations

##### Age 14 to 16Challenge 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?

### Perpendicular Lines

### Diamond Collector

##### Age 11 to 16Challenge Level

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

### Parallel Lines

##### Age 11 to 14Challenge Level

How does the position of the line affect the equation of the line? What can you say about the equations of parallel lines?

### Triangular Slope

##### Age 14 to 16 ShortChallenge Level

Can you find the gradients of the lines that form a triangle?

### Reflecting Lines

##### Age 11 to 14Challenge Level

Investigate what happens to the equations of different lines when you reflect them in one of the axes. Try to predict what will happen. Explain your findings.

### From All Corners

##### Age 14 to 16Challenge Level

Straight lines are drawn from each corner of a square to the mid points of the opposite sides. Express the area of the octagon that is formed at the centre as a fraction of the area of the square.

### Lying and Cheating

##### Age 11 to 14Challenge Level

Follow the instructions and you can take a rectangle, cut it into 4 pieces, discard two small triangles, put together the remaining two pieces and end up with a rectangle the same size. Try it!
