Polyhedron Models for the Classroom.
Wenninger, Magnus J.
This booklet explains the historical background and construction techniques for various sets of uniform polyhedra. The author indicates that the practical significance of the constructions arises in illustrations for the ideas of symmetry, reflection, rotation, translation, group theory and topology. Details for constructing hollow paper models are provided for the five Platonic solids, miscellaneous irregular polyhedra and some compounds arising from the stellation process. (RS)
