Winter Olympics – curling with maths!

With Olympic events still in mind, you’ll have some fun with the interactive activity we invented for Level Up Maths! It’s an activity around Levels 5 and 6 for algebra.

The scenario is that you’re a contestant in the curling event, which somehow has turned into turtle-sliding! The line the turtle takes to the target is shown on coordinate axes and you have to work out the equation of the line. The software keeps your score through the rounds, so you can see whether you’ve medalled!

Here it is!
