May 21, 2014 - Autograph, Autograph Tutorial Videos

The second of the Autograph Puzzle Trilogy! Here we look at another a lovely pencil and paper puzzle inspired by Don Steward’s amazing Median Maths Blog. Students are given four co-ordinates and asked to consider the shape that would be formed by joining up the midpoints of pairs of these co-ordinates. What type of quadrilateral is it? How do they know? We can then turn to Autograph to construct the puzzle and investigate it even further.
