Math Fun With Zome

Math can be fun, and it can be made even more enjoyable when

elegant mathematical facts are made tangible via concrete models.

Zome Systems --- a polyhedral building kit based on the geometry

of the dodecahedron/icosahedron pair --- can provide many hours

of fun-filled math edutainment.

In this blog, we hope to help to share some of the insights we

have gained over the last few years in the form of easy to

consume byte-sized capsules.

For an in-depth review of many of these facts, see
