A Circle Journey
The initial task involves using factors of 12 and 12 to set up two points. Compasses are used to draw a circle that has the two points as its diameter. An interesting feature of the resulting...
Annulus Volume of Revolution
A segment of a circle is created using a chord parallel to the xaxis. The resulting segment of the circle is then revolved 360° about the xaxis. The problem is to calculate the volume of the resulting annulus.
To find a general solution to the problem involves using an elemental disc ring and integrating...
Brackets Out, Brackets In
The problem starts with choosing three distinct, nonzero integers between 5 and 5 that do not sum to zero. These are then used in a six factorisations that make use of...
A Geometric Progression Problem
There is an initial investigation of geometric progressions where the interval between the first and second, and the third and fourth terms are given, with the challenge of discovering two possible values for the first term and associated common ratio. There are ten examples to work on to enable collaboration...
