A fun coincidence with an Eduardo Viruena creation

I got some great feedback from Eduardo Viruena on the project we did with one of his math designs: A short project inspired by a Holly Krieger tweet One of his other designs he pointed me to was this one: A small stellated dodecahedron approximated by dodecahedra Here’s his picture: I printed it over the … Continue reading A fun coincidence with an Eduardo Viruena creation

Tiling 3 dimensional Space with our Zometool set

A while back we did a fun project from Zome Geometry about tiling the plane with different shapes you can make out of Zome struts – these pentagons, for example: Zome Tilings   Yesterday we did another project out of Zome Geometry looking at Archimedean Solids: A Quick Zometool Project Today we sort of combined … Continue reading Tiling 3 dimensional Space with our Zometool set

A little Zome geometry in our new house

I was playing around in our Zome Geometry book looking for a project today. Stumbled on chapter 12 in the book about Archimedean solids. Unfortunately as we are currently transitioning between houses, I didn’t have any green zome struts. Luckily we found a few shapes that we could make using only blues. The goals for … Continue reading A little Zome geometry in our new house
