A polyhedron is a geometric object, which is bounded by a finite number of polygons, called faces. Faces meet in line segments, called edges, and edges meet in vertices. We may think of polyhedra as of three-dimensional analogues to two-dimensional polygons. Even though polyhedra are known from antiquity, they still draw the attention of mathematicians.
In this workshop, we will learn about regular polyhedra as well as about those that are not regular. Moreover, we will explore the notion of a convex polyhedron and the dual of a polyhedron. We will mainly focus on symmetric objects, which are considered pleasing by mathematicians. On the example of polyhedra,
We will try to understand what it means for an object to be symmetric. Of course, there will be enought time also for nice mathematical tricks and games.
