This is the pdf version of a small puzzle that I have on the National 5 and Higher pages of www.mathsmutt.co.uk, concerning a molehill that appeared in the garden and some of the maths that could be found from it.
It could be used as a non textbook application of thinking mathematically or revision for quadratics, integration, cross sectional area and circle equations.
This is a free sample of ISBN-13: 978-1091452886 Nat5/GCSE Mathematics Revision Questions With Worked Solutions . This is a pupil version , so no worked solutions are included.
This book contains twenty six sets of questions covering:-
Arcs & Sectors, Brackets,

Primarily aimed at the Scottish SQA National 5 Mathematics award, the material is also useful for GCSE revision. Great for use as homework.
