Ning: PCMI 2012


Carol had given participants contact paper, patterns, etc. and at the Building Party they came together to put things together. The pattern is from the Rhombic Dodecahedron - Hidden Within or Surrounding the Cube? activity by Joyce Frost and Kris Koch. When we realized that the jpeg was a bit fuzzy in that activity we asked Joyce if she could send us a better copy. She did and also commented:

Technology has sure improved since we put that worksheet up. I am attaching a scanned copy of the nets. To make the Stellated Rhombic Dodecahedron puzzle that transforms back and forth to a cube, takes 4 of these sheets (48 pieces - 24 for each Rhombic Dodecahedron). Thanks for asking me! It makes me feel a little bit a part of PCMI - such a wonderful part of my life! Please ask anytime for any updates, improvements, or additional stuff. I'm happy to share.  ~Joyce
