Easter Mathematics 2018

It’s Easter time again, so time for some Mathematical Easter treats!

Also a post for students – a puzzle from Mathisfun which is just an excuse to solve some simultaneous equations (and how to do it on Excel with the neat MINVERSE function!) The post also includes some notes and examples for students on simultaneous equations.

I have noticed whilst using WolframAlpha random suggestions of queries popping up that somebody out there thought I might enjoy (very worrying how right they are!); this popped up – typing, for example, Darth Vader curve into WolframAlpha gives you just that! And my favourite Dilbert and associates are all there too!

On the subject of Easter eggs, I must return to this definition. An updated edition of…
WolframAlpha – a little fun! 

Easter Egg AutographFrom an Easter post some time ago, Douglas Butler created this Easter Egg in Autograph, just enter:
x²/4 + y²/4 + 5z²/36 = 1
and: r = z + 3.5

Happy Easter to educators and their students everywhere! Why not give your students a calendar from Just Maths, so they can do a little bit of Maths each day…?
