## Angry Bird Parabolas: graphing quadratic equations

This set of games asks students to find the correct equation of the parabola in order to hit the pig! Three set of coordinates are given and students are required to calculate the equation of the parabola. They will be required to understand the equation of a quadratic, in particular the form y=a(x - p)(x - q) would be helpful. Great fun!

#### Graph Plotting Angry Birds

I couldn't find many fun activities for graph plotting so I made my own! Plot the graphs to see the trajectory of your angry bird and see if you&'ll hit the pigs. The first is a negative quadratic graph, the second is a cubic. This could be adapted for any type of graph.\n\nThis is my first resource so feedback would be much appreciated!

#### Linear Equations Angry Birds Interactive

PLEASE REVIEW!! Differentiated activity (posiitve, negative, free play) for pupils to work out the best equations to gain the most points. I have also created an interactive geogebra file (free online software download) for each sheet - which when you follow the instructions will animate the pupils angry bird equations. The pupil sheet currently have the equations which will gain the maximum number of points, these will need to be blanked out for printing. ENJOY!

#### Pyramid volume Proof

This is a lovely practical activity to help students visualise and derive the formula for the volume of a pyramid. By constructing square based pyramids (10cm by 10cm) with height 5cm then fitting six of them together to make a cube of edge 10cm they realise the volume of the pyramid is 1000/6cm². The activity is supported with videos and practice questions.

#### Transforming Functions - The Stretch

Students find transforming functions one of the most demanding topics in mathematics at this level. In particular, the effect a has on the function, f(x) for y=af(x) and y=f(ax) and understanding just what a stretch is. This activity documents the most succesful approach I've had with this topic. It approaches the idea from the angle of transforming shapes, looking at the effect on the coordinates, then applying the same transformations to graphs. Watch video for an overview

#### Discovering Pi Thinking Activity

This Pi investigation enables students to discover pi for themselves through a practical activity. The classic string method of measuring the circumference of a circle is enhanced with a thought provoking applet and a chance to use dynamic geometry to make very accurate measurements. This activity is best attempted before the students have any knowledge of pi.
