and all things polyhedral!

Welcome to  This site contains information, computer graphics, a computer-animated video, teaching tools, and links pertaining to the three-dimensional geometry of the polyhedron in its many forms.  The site is particularly focused on the five Platonic solids: the tetrahedron, the cube, the octahedron, the icosahedron, and the dodecahedron.  The site also focuses on the compound solids made from the dual pairs of Platonic solids.  Please explore what the site has to offer and come back often to see updates.
