Explore the reaches of your imagination by combining art, craft, and mathematics to create the age-old geometric form of the polyhedra. More than 50 projects use just one central point to create shapes that are folded symmetrically and build upon each other. With easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, you can construct models from regular polygons, including equilateral triangles, squares, pentagons, hexagons, octagons, and decagons. These engaging projects require active, mental participation and can aid in reshaping familiar thought patterns as well as keeping your focus on the present moment as a form of relaxation. Also included is a wealth of detail on the subject of geometry. Once a requirement for entry into the philosopher Plato's Academy, now geometry can be enjoyed by everyone with an eye for fun. The book includes a chapter of tips to create your own designs.
