Tilings, Platonic Solids, and Theorems
Lecture no. 28 from the course: Geometry: An Interactive Journey to Mastery
Taught by Professor James Tanton | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
You’ve seen geometric tiling patterns on your bathroom floor and in the works of great artists. But what would happen if you made repeating patterns in 3-D space? In this lecture, discover the five platonic solids! Also, become an artist and create your own beautiful patterns—even using more than one type of shape.
