My friends, this week we definitely achieved triangularity. Triangles are such a fascinating shape for so many reasons.
With any three lengths or angles, you can only make one triangle. Similarly, since three points form a plane, a chair with three legs, no matter their lengths, will always stand stable on the floor (even if the floor isn't level).
These properties have fascinated mathematicians across the ages, and this week was no different.
Claire, Lucida and Mia demonstrate what it felt like to stand inside the icosahedron.
Ethan and Mia demonstrates the pyramid (with triangular operating system?). Check out that mouse!
Okidoke, that's a wrap for this fantastic, three-sided week. Be sure to check out the flickr in order to see pictures from throughout the week!
