The most symmetric shapes in three dimensions

Dr. David Jordan, Feb 11, 2012
We use magnetic 'Magz' pieces as vertices and edges to construct lots of the different shapes, some exhibiting more symmetry than others. Through the activities, we develop different definitions of what it means to be symmetric, and formulate a famous conjecture relating the edges, vertices, and faces of a convex polyhedron.
