Snell's Law When light refracts from one medium to another, the ratio of sine of the angles is equal to the ratio of refractive index of each corresponding medium. Snell's Law implies that light, when refracting from one medium to another, takes the shortest path. We can show by differentiatio…

Creating Pascal's Triangle in C#: for computer science at GCSE, IGCE, A Level and programmers
The above animation is produced in C# programming language for students who do computer science at GCSE, IGCSE, IB and A Level. The code snippet consists of four major function that collectively produce the Pascal's Triangle. They are: A factorial function A function to generate combinations A funct…
Straight Line Graph Generator: for Year 9, GCSE Maths
The equation of a straight line is given by the formula, y = mx + c, where m and c are the gradient and intercept respectively. The gradient, m, is the slope or steepness of the line; the intercept, c, is the point where it crosses the yaxis at. E.g. A straight line passes through (1,2) and (3, 8). F…
Constructions for Maths: GCSE, IGCSE and GCE  OL
A circumcircle is a circle that touches the three vertices of a circle from outside. It can easily be constructed by the following steps: Construct the perpendicular bisectors of each side of the triangle Locate the point of intersection of the bisectors The point of intersection is the centre of the c…

Solving equations by iteration  GCSE, IGCSE and A Level maths  using Python
Iteration If f(x) =0, it can be rearranged in the form of x = g(x), where both f(x) and g(x) are functions of x. Then x = g(x) is said to be in iterative form. E.g. x²  x  5 = 0 x² = x + 5 x n+1 = √(x n + 5)  f(x) = 0 in iterative form If x n is known, x n+1 can be calculated. The above is not the only ite…
How to measure atmospheric pressure by a mercury barometer  a toxic legacy!
The pressure of a liquid column is given by the formula, p = hdg, where h, d and g are the depth/height, density and the acceleration due to gravity respectively. A few decades ago, in order to measure the atmospheric pressure, a simple barometer was used. It consisted of a thin, long, glass tube …

Differentiating Trigonometric Functions
When it comes to differentiating the functions of sin x and cos x, we need to use two fractions of the functions in question, when the variable approaches zero must be considered. They are as follows: lim sin (x) / x, as x → 0 lim (cos x  1) / x as x → 0 Based on the above, sin x and cos x can be dif…

Energy changes in simple harmonic motion
The above simulation of the simple harmonic motion involving a pendulum shows how the potential energy, PE and kinetic energy, KE, change with the position of the pendulum, provided that the latter swings through a small angle. As you can see the total energy of the system remains the same: the loss…

Locus of a point: A Level further maths  complex numbers
With the following simulation, you can find out the equation of the locus of a point that moves in such a way that Argument(Z  z1) = Î˜. The locus of the point is a half line  a line that starts from a point and moves only in one direction from it up to infinity. You can change the position of Z  …
Resultant Moment of Forces  GCSE, IGCSE and A Level physics
With the following simulation, you can practise the moment of forces interactively. Moment of a force = force X perpendicular distance from the pivot The resultant moment or the total moment is the algebraic sum of the moments of forces. In the simulation, the clockwise moment is considered as posit…
A Level Core Maths: complex numbers and loci
The above simulation can be used to learn the locus of a point, under given conditions. Just move the point, Z, using the mouse and watch the appearance and disappearance of the shaded region. Alternatively, you can use the play button at the bottomright corner too.
