|Rick Engel; Polymorf, Inc.|
|Lesson on how the structure of space determines the shape of things in geometry and chemistry. The principles of solid geometry are related to their real life embodiment in the crystal structures of elements and minerals using Polymorf, a new math/science manipulative. Demonstrations of inscription, truncation, and space filling polyhedra lay the foundation for understanding how atoms pack together to form crystals with varying chemical composition and physical properties.|
