The Principles for Imagination
There is a lot of emphasis on using Logic at school especially in the later years, to the detriment of Imagination. As we get older, our imagination dwindles and so we need to actively spend time exercising it.
Fuel is the energy for your imagination
We use the principles of Fuel, Freedom and Flexibility to let your imagination soar again.
Freedom lets your imagination soar by removing blocks
We use the principles of Fuel, Freedom and Flexibility to let your imagination soar again.
Flexibility improves imagination by letting you shift mental gears

Not really a test , more of an assessment of how you think.

Year 10/11 maths: Calculating gradients for speed and distance travelled from area under graph.
This graph shows how an objects distance changes with time.
The gradient of the graph tells you the velocity or speed (m/s)
A velocity is a speed in a certain direction
Part A of the graph shows a velocity of 15m/5s = 3m/s
Q1: What velocity is shown by parts B, C and D?
ANS
B: 5m/10s = ½ m/s
C: stopped
D: –20m/10s = –2m/s (Slowing down)
This curved graph shows the distance a person travels in 30 seconds.
Q1: Work out the gradient at time = 15
Q2: Explain what the gradient of this tangent tells you about the person.
Q1: Draw a tangent to curve at time=15.
Gradient = △ y ÷ △ x = 0.4m/s
Q2:The gradient is the distance travelled in the time and is the speed of the person.
The person is changing speed with time because the gradient is changing.
So a curve distance time graph shows an acceleration or deceleration.
This graph is often called a speed time graph.
It shows how velocity changes with time.
The gradient of the graph is the acceleration, m/s^{2}
Part A of the graph shows an acceleration of 15ms/5s = 3m/s^{2}
Q1: What acceleration is shown by parts B and C?
Q2: What is the distance travelled
ANS
Q1: B: Not accelerating - constant velocity of 20m/s
C: –20m/s/10s = –2ms^{2} (decelerating)
Q2: the distance travelled is the Area under the graph.
This is a trapezium. Area = height × (average of top and bottom lengths)
Area = 20 × (30+5)/2 = 350m
This curved graph shows how the velocity of a car changes over 30 seconds.
Q1: Work out the gradient at time = 10
Q2: Explain what the gradient of this tangent tells you about the car.
Q3: How would you work out the distance travelled in 15 seconds
ANS
Q1: Draw a tangent to curve at time=10.
Gradient = △ y ÷ △ x = 0.8m/s^{2}
Q2:The gradient is the change in velocity, which is the acceleration of the car.
The car is changing acceleration with time because the gradient is changing.
Q3: To work out the distance travelled, make 3 trapezium strips.
Each strip is 5 seconds wide.
Average the two heights of each trapezium, then work out the area.
The area will be an under estimate.
