# Seeing is Believing

Some problems become much clearer when you find a good image to represent them, and some mathematical results can be proved beautifully with just a simple diagram.

We hope you will find plenty to inspire you here to draw your own diagrams as well as using our images to discover relationships and make connections.

### Neighbours

This activity begins by inviting you to add pairs of consecutive numbers. What is the same about all the answers? Can you explain what is happening?

### Dodecagon dissection

Grab a ruler, paper and scissors, construct a dodecagon, and cut it up. Can you reassemble it in a way to help you find its area?

### Chocolate and Numbers

In this collection of activities, we invite you to create pictures or diagrams to represent numbers. Get your teeth into our chocolately challenges first!

### Check it out

If you play chess or draughts, you'll be familiar with a chessboard, but a checked pattern can be used for so much more than playing board games...

### Beyond Dominoes

A domino is made up of two squares joined together edge to edge. But what if we add more squares? Explore triominoes, tetrominoes, pentominoes and beyond!

### Move it to prove it

Sometimes, all you need to do to prove a mathematical result is look at it in the right way. Explore these tasks to see how moving shapes can help you to prove results.

### Centred Shapes

Centred Shapes are made by building up a pattern of dots in a certain shape. Explore how centred shapes can fit together, and see how many patterns you can find!

### Picture This

This collection of articles and videos explores how finding the right picture makes it easier to follow challenging mathematical ideas.
