Plato then attached those to the cube, octahedron, tetrahedron, and icosahedron, thinking of the dodecahedron, the fifth regular polyhedron, as representing the universe. Centuries later Paolo Uccello, Johannes Kepler, and M. C. Escher explored a new type of dodecahedron built entirely from pentagrams (five-pointed stars) instead of pentagons. Join mathematician Ethan Bolker as we weave together history, art, math, and twelve five-pointed stars, creating your very own stellated dodecahedron to take home! Thanks to the generous support of Two Sigma, this program is free to attendees http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=384689 MoMath (National Museum of Mathematics) MoMath (National Museum of Mathematics)
