### Functions

The first of two RISP activities, Periodic Functions, asks students to write down as many periodic functions as they can. The activity progresses to look at what happens to the period when graphs with different periods are combined. Topics covered are...

### Risps for A2 Level Core: Integration 2

This RISP activity, The answer's 1: what's the question?, gives students graphs containing shaded areas enclosed by two functions. Examples of a straight line and a quadratic graph, a cubic graph and an exponential graph are used. Given that the enclosed area has a value of one, students are asked...
