Reesink, Carole J.
Mathematics Teacher, v75 n6 p454-61 Sep 1982
Teachers are encouraged to have pupils examine the symmetry of crystals when instruction is given on three-dimensional geometry and polyhedra. Crystals are noted to provide students with three-dimensional applications of transformational geometry, and the pupils also learn mineral identification. Suppliers of mineral models and specimens are noted. (MP)
