Polyhedra in the Classroom || Suzanne's Math Lessons
______________________________________________

Students studying polyhedra enjoy seeing the structures as they occur in the real world. Crystalline structures can be categorized into seven crystal systems. Students can access links to photographs of beautiful crystals. Paper models of crystals can be made by printing out nets of crystals and constructing the models. CrystalMaker software gives students experience with ball-and-stick, space-filling, wire-frame, stick, dot surface cloud, and polyhedral models of crystals.
