I have been given some practice coursework by my teacher, the quadrat virus investigation dated september 2001-april 2001. I do not have any idea where to start with this. I was wondering if anybody has done this coursework and could help me get the idea of it or if anybody can give me any general maths coursework tips.

Thanks!

We have that to do and I'm a bit stuck. All I notice is every minute after the first minute 4 more squares are added on extra.

You mean the one where it spreads out 1 in all directions?

I've just done this coursework as a practice, and really it's not THAT hard. For the squares, just draw them out, make a table, and find the formulas from there. Then to extend it, try to do the same with other shapes, like triangles.

So far I've found formulas for triangles, pentagons and hexagons, eventually finding a formula to find the formula for any shapes. Then I found the formula to find the formular for any 3D object's total number if infected cells as well as new cells infected per minute.

I haven't got my books with me at the moment, and I can't remember all the formulas off the top of my head, so you'll just have to make do with what I've proposed. Good luck!

Sorry about that, in that case I haven't got a clue. Have you tried the links in the thread at the top of the forum?
Is that like the bad tomato problem, whereby there's a tomato in the middle of a tray, and every hour the tomatos touching the bad tomato go off, and you have to find a formula etc for it if so, try searching for bad tomatto investigation, as I think they do have that on essaybank, if not tell me, and I'll see what I can remember.
