##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

What is the quickest route across a ploughed field when your speed around the edge is greater? ### Loch Ness

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

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

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

This function involves absolute values. To find the slope on the slide use different equations to define the function in different parts of its domain. ### Exponential Trend

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

Find all the turning points of y=x^{1/x} for x>0 and decide whether each is a maximum or minimum. Give a sketch of the graph. ### Bird-brained

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

How many eggs should a bird lay to maximise the number of chicks that will hatch? An introduction to optimisation. ### Turning to Calculus

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

Get started with calculus by exploring the connections between the sign of a curve and the sign of its gradient. ### Impedance Can Be Complex!

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

Put your complex numbers and calculus to the test with this impedance calculation. ### Ramping it Up

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

Look at the calculus behind the simple act of a car going over a step. ### Calculus Countdown

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

Can you hit the target functions using a set of input functions and a little calculus and algebra? ### Operating Machines

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

What functions can you make using the function machines RECIPROCAL and PRODUCT and the operator machines DIFF and INT? ### Integration Matcher

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

Can you match the charts of these functions to the charts of their integrals? ### Least of All

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

A point moves on a line segment. A function depends on the position of the point. Where do you expect the point to be for a minimum of this function to occur. ### Towards Maclaurin

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

Build series for the sine and cosine functions by adding one term at a time, alternately making the approximation too big then too small but getting ever closer. ### An Introduction to Differentiation

##### Age 14 to 18

An article introducing the ideas of differentiation. ### Bend

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

What is the longest stick that can be carried horizontally along a narrow corridor and around a right-angled bend? ### Generally Geometric

##### Age 16 to 18Challenge Level

Generalise the sum of a GP by using derivatives to make the coefficients into powers of the natural numbers.
