Linear Equations

This resource is an interactive excel program to enable students to solve some different types of linear equations. Each interactive sheet begins with an example of how the student could write out each stage of the solution. Students can click on the cells which are...

Max Box

This resource is an interactive excel program which provides dynamic drawings and graphs related to the classic maximum volume of a box problem. There are two versions of the problem, one starting with a square base and the other with a rectangular base.


Equations of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

This excel program is about finding the equation of straight lines in the form ax+by+c=0. The first two sheets deals with the equation of the line through two given points and the equation of the line through a point perpendicular to a given line. The resource is an...


This resource contains four excel programs with interactive spreadsheets dealing with topics relating to quadratic expressions, their graphs and solving quadratic equations.
