Abstract

Cabri 3D extends the domain of Dynamic Geometry from the plane to the space. It is now possible to build virtual 3D geometric models interactively based on the methods of synthetic geometry. In this tutorial the concrete models we are to create include:

Rhombic Dodecahedron

Small Rhombicuboctahedron

@

@

Deltahedron

Tetrahemihexahedron

@

@

Great Dodecahedron

Stella Octangula

@

@

Dodecahedron plus Icosahedron

Five Tetrahedra in a Dodecahedron

@

@

Five Cubes in a Dodecahedron

Great Stellated Dodecahedron

Computing environment required: Windows with the software Cabri 3D installed.

Limitation on the number of the audience: the same number as available PC's.
