Limiting Probabilities

Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Given probabilities of taking paths in a graph from each node, use matrix multiplication to find the probability of going from one vertex to another in 2 stages, or 3, or 4 or even 100.

Exploring Cubic Functions

Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

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

Parabolas Again

Age 14 to 18 Challenge Level:

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

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.

Enclosing Squares

Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Can you find sets of sloping lines that enclose a square?

A Close Match

Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Can you massage the parameters of these curves to make them match as closely as possible?

Pitchfork

Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Plot the graph of x^y = y^x in the first quadrant and explain its properties.

Climbing

Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Sketch the graphs of y = sin x and y = tan x and some straight lines. Prove some inequalities.

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.

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.

Quartics

Age 16 to 18 Challenge Level:

Investigate the graphs of y = [1 + (x - t)^2][1 + (x + t^)2] as the parameter t varies.
