Friction, Archery and Maize Games

Heatherton! This little collection of games from Wales is kind of addictive! There are three games that appear to be free to play – Archery, Race Car Testing and the Maize Maze.

The Archery game involves some speedy maths to earn arrows which you then get to use on targets where it’s all about the angle and force you apply. Apparently you can move up a level, but I’m not sure if I managed that!

The Race Car Testing game involves choosing different surfaces or different gradient of slope to then have a race car test. Each surface/gradient has to have 3 test runs before an everage is calculated (or you can turn off the calculations so you have to measure the stopping distance and average yourself). Some of the surfaces are normal standard ones – sandpaper, tin foil, glass – and then there’s jelly!

For the maize maze, there’s a whole bunch of information you can read before then answering questions on, well, maize. I didn’t read the info, but still got a handful of questions right and I guess this game will only be useful if you’re studying maize.

All three games have printable results and they don’t require logging in. Definitely something there for physics and maths.
