Subject: Re: Software and geometry

There is some great software that was recently pointed out to me and then
I tried it and bought a site license that very same day! I just think it is
great. You can download it here:


Poly is a shareware program for exploring and constructing polyhedra.
With Poly, you can manipulate a polyhedral solid on the computer and
print out a flattened version (a net) which can then be cut out,
folded, and taped, to produce a three-dimensional model. Unregistered
copies are fully-functional, but remember that Poly is for evaluation
purposes only until you have registered. Poly has both an English and a
Spanish interface.

Then, here are two web sites that you might find interesting:

Studying Polyhedra;

Crystallographic Polyhedra:

Then you might find this unit interesting:

Polyhedra in the Classroom

I hope that helps.
