The session of Rossiyskaya Gazeta will also be devoted to broad legal issues, and experts invited by the publication of the traffic police Stop-Newspaper will tell all about road safety.
A well-known Russian meteorologist, director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, Roman Vilfand, will share his vision of climate change during the session of the publication Arguments and Facts.

The festive atmosphere will be complemented by the “Peoples of Moscow” music festival from Vecherka, as well as a concert dedicated to the 40th anniversary of the publishing house AiF.

All fans of mathematical polyhedra will be able to independently make models of polyhedrons and take them with them.



Archimedean Polyhedra

all archimedean solids
Archimedes, a scientist from Ancient Greece, discovered thirteen types of polyhedra, now called Archimedean solids, which are also referred to as semi-regular polyhedra.

Mathematical properties of the Platonic solids

One can specify the following mathematical characteristics in each of the five Platonic solids:

1. The radius of the sphere circumscribing the polyhedron;

2. The radius of the sphere inscribed in the polyhedron;

3. The surface area of the polyhedron;

4. The volume of the polyhedron.

Practical use of paper models

why needs paper nets

Quite often a question about a practical use of paper models pops up.  What is the point of paper modeling?

Polyhedra in nature

In the natural environment, regular polyhedra can be found in the form of crystals (minerals). The form of the tetrahedron is transmitted by antimony sodium sulfate.

Polyhedron. What is it?

A polyhedron is a solid bounded by flat polygons, which are called faces. The sides of the faces are called edges, and their corners are called vertices. Depending on the number of faces one can specify a tetrahedron (4 faces), pentahedron (5 faces), etc. A polyhedron is considered to be convex if it is located on one side of the plane of each of its faces. A polyhedron is called regular if its faces are regular polygons (i.e., where all sides and angles are equal) and all polyhedral angles at the vertices are equal. There are five types of regular polyhedra: tetrahedron, cube (regular hexahedron), octahedron, dodecahedron, icosahedron.

Polyhedra in architecture

Architects have used the elements of polyhedra in designing their constructions since ancient times. Nowadays this approach distinguishes buildings among thousands of others.

Divide the icosahedron (into parts)

Divide the icosahedron

Is it possible to make up an icosahedron using more simple polyhedra?

Divide the icosahedron


icosahedron birdhouse

Studio Artemy Lebedev (makes the design for the leading search engine Yandex) was proposed form of a birdhouse in the form of a polyhedron.

The correct polyhedron, the icosahedron, was chosen as the geometric shape.

Polyhedron as an emblem of the town

The founders of the city of Mirny, located in the Arkhangelsk region, placed a polyhedron, the Great Dodecahedron, on the flag and emblem of their city.

A star is an image of divine idea and will, due to them our Light and Universe were created and started to exist in Space.
