- Equation or Identity (1) 01/12/1999 00:00Which of these equations concerning the angles of triangles are always true?
- Equation or Identity (2) 01/12/1999 00:00Here are some more triangle equations. Which are always true?
- Have a Sine 01/12/1999 00:00There's much more to trigonometry than sin, cos and tan...
- Factorial Fragments 01/12/2014 00:00Here you have an expression containing logs and factorials! What can you do with it?
- Approaching Asymptotes 01/11/2014 00:00Can you describe what an asymptote is? This resource includes a list of statements about asymptotes and a collection of graphs, some of which have asymptotes. Use the graphs to help you decide whether you agree with the statements about asymptotes.
- Two-way Functions 01/11/2014 00:00This gives you an opportunity to explore roots and asymptotes of functions, both by identifying properties that functions have in common and also by trying to find functions that have particular properties. You may like to use the list of functions in the Hint, which includes enough functions to complete the table plus some extras.You might like to work on this problem in a pair or small group, or to compare your table to someone else's to see where you have used the same functions and where not.

- Discriminating 01/09/2014 00:00You're invited to decide whether statements about the number of solutions of a quadratic equation is always, sometimes or never true.
- Factorisable Quadratics 01/09/2014 00:00This will encourage you to think about whether all quadratics can be factorised and to develop a better understanding of the effect that changing the coefficients has on the factorised form.
- Which Quadratic? 01/09/2014 00:00In this activity you will need to work in a group to connect different representations of quadratics.
