Abstract

Drawing from many years of experience in the teaching of geometry, this workshop presents a simple method for making pull-up Platonic solids in the classroom (requiring only card nets and string). Workshop participants will have the opportunity to make pull-up Platonic solids for themselves. Further possibilities for the creation of pull-up nets for other polyhedra will also be discussed.
