Satisfactory EssaysShapes and Their Areas The objective of this coursework is to find out which shapes have the biggest area. The perimeter must be 1000m, and the shapes can be regular or irregular. First of all I will experiment with different rectangles, the different triangles, then pentagons. Then I will experiment with more regular shapes (or whatever type of shape has the largest area) to see the effect on area changing the number of sides has. I predict that the largest shape will be a regular circle

Satisfactory EssaysShapes Investigation I am doing an investigation to look at shapes made up of other shapes (starting with triangles, then going on squares and hexagons. I will try to find the relationship between the perimeter (in cm), dots enclosed and the amount of shapes (i.e. triangles etc.) used to make a shape. From this, I will try to find a formula linking P (perimeter), D (dots enclosed) and T (number of triangles used to make a shape). Later on in this investigation T will be substituted

Satisfactory EssaysT-Shape Investigation Firstly, I am going to look at the relationship between the t-number and the t-total. I am going to refer to these terms using the letters N and Z: n = t-number z = -total I will take the first t-shape at the top left of a 9 x 9 size grid. 1 2 3 4 10 11 12 13 19 20 21 22 28 29 30 31 37 38 39 40 N= 20 Z = 37 I predict that if I move the t-shape to a different location the t-total will be the t-number

Satisfactory EssaysDrain Pipes Shape Investigation Introduction A builder has a sheet of plastic measuring 2m by 50cm, which he uses to make drains. The semi-circle is the best shape for a drain. Prove this. I will prove this by comparing its volume to that of other shapes. On older houses there are semi-circular drains but on newer houses there is fancier ones like pentagon shapes. Is this because they are better or is it simply for design? To find the volume of a 3D object I have to find the

Powerful EssaysStair Shapes I am going to investigate into the stair total of different sized stair shapes on different sized number grids, the stair total being the total of the numbers inside the stair shape. I will then see if I can produce an algebraic formula to calculate this total for any sized stair shape on any sized grid. I shall start by finding a formula for the total of numbers in a 3-step stair on a 10×10 grid (for example see fig. 1), based on one of the numbers inside the stair shape.

Satisfactory EssaysInvestigating the Isoperimetric Quotient of Plane Shapes Problem: To investigate the isoperimetric quotient (IQ) of plane shapes using the calculation shown below. [IMAGE] Plan: ----- I will start off by investigating three sided shapes and then increasing the number of sides as I go along. I will be looking at how different factors such as the number of sides on a shape and the length and angle of the sides of the shapes affect the isoperimetric quotient. Hypothesis:
