Draw a circle and mark 24 points equally spaced around the circumference. To do this, draw a circle and mark the centre, and mark your first point on […]
What do you know about robots? What are drones? Are driver-less cars actually robots? What do you think about robots that move around warehouses to pick up and carry loads from place to place, about robots that mow lawns and clean floors and about robots that control complicated machinery in factories?

If you also know that AB and CD are parallel which angles can you find?
What extra information do you need to find all the numbered angles?
What do you notice? Why does this happen? Will it […]

The line RS is a tangent at P to the circle centre O and radius 1 unit.
Find the lengths OQ, PQ, PS, OS, OR and RP.
If OS and OR lie on the coordinate axes, what are the coordinates […]
We say that a shape tessellates if we can fit together copies of it to cover a flat surface without leaving any gaps and this covering can be extended in all directions.
