Use your knowledge of angles to work out how many degrees the hour and minute hands of a clock travel through in different amounts of time.
Chippy the Robot goes on journeys. How far and in what direction must he travel to get back to his base?
How many different triangles can you make on a circular pegboard that has nine pegs?
Can you find all the different triangles on these peg boards, and find their angles?
Use the interactivity to investigate what kinds of triangles can be drawn on peg boards with different numbers of pegs.
If you take a three by three square on a 1-10 addition square and multiply the diagonally opposite numbers together, what is the difference between these products. Why?
Can you find triangles on a 9-point circle? Can you work out their angles?
Can you make a right-angled triangle on this peg-board by joining up three points round the edge?
What is the relationship between the angle at the centre and the angles at the circumference, for angles which stand on the same arc? Can you prove it?
Make five different quadrilaterals on a nine-point pegboard, without using the centre peg. Work out the angles in each quadrilateral you make. Now, what other relationships you can see?
The length AM can be calculated using trigonometry in two different ways. Create this pair of equivalent calculations for different peg boards, notice a general result, and account for it.
On a nine-point pegboard a band is stretched over 4 pegs in a "figure of 8" arrangement. How many different "figure of 8" arrangements can be made ?
Join some regular octahedra, face touching face and one vertex of each meeting at a point. How many octahedra can you fit around this point?
Stick some cubes together to make a cuboid. Find two of the angles by as many different methods as you can devise.
