Cut & Assemble Icosahedra
$14.95
Twelve cut-and-assemble models of icoshedra offer children and professional mathematicians alike a tangible way to appreciate the structure and intrinsic beauty of polyhedra. The models range in difficulty from simple to complex. Some feature colors that reveal their relationships, and all five underlying shapes are rendered in white to emphasize their overall structure and to allow model-makers to color them as they wish. This hands-on educational activity book includes complete step-by-step instructions and diagrams for assembly plus mathematical explanations of the geometric shapes. Ideal classroom tools for teachers of high school and college geometry courses, these models are also charming diversions for papercraft hobbyists. By Eve Torrance. 8-1/4" x 11", 64 pages (2011).

D-Forms
$14.95
D-Forms are developable surfaces opening up new areas of mathematics, as well as many sculptural and design possibilities. D-Forms hold many surprises, and you can only appreciate them fully by making the models. Creating D-Forms is unlike most forms of model making. A pair of shapes can be joined edge-to-edge in an infinite number of ways. In this book, you can cut and assemble ten fantastic models and then use the templates included to make countless more. By John Sharp. Paperback, 8-1/4" x 11-3/4", 44 pages (2009).

PolyPuzzle GeoKit 11
$17.95
In this kit a special feature of the hexagons is used to fold along a curved edge to make the dimpled dodecahedron with circular faces. Hexagons are combined with triangles to make a large tetrahedron. The rhombuses make a great dodecahedron -- also called the Kepler Star -- and there are still enough pieces left to make a cuboctahedron and a dimpled tetrahedron. Ages 12 and up.

Captured Worlds
$12.95
Captured Worlds is a set of five pop-out, glue, and fold-up polyhedra. The five used in Captured Worlds are known as the Platonic Solids. They are decorated with fanciful scenes rendered in six-point perspective by internationally-known artist Dick Termes. This unique perspective system allows an entire three-dimensional surrounding to be projected onto the polyhedra. Ages 13 to adult.

Geoballs
$24.95
Geoballs is a cut and scored kit that allows the construction of 18 different polyhedra from card stock. No glue or tape is needed; a locking tab-and-slot system is used. These models bring together two ancient geometric disciplines: the study of Platonic and Archimedean solids, and traditional Islamic patterns.
