Marshmallow model

Post by robertw » Sun Feb 10, 2019 3:44 am

Here's a model I made with marshmallows and toothpicks at MathsJam Melbourne. It could be any of the four polyhedra shown, as they all have the same edges. Three are uniform, the 4th is the compound of 5 cubes. Interesting that you can form regular triangles, squares, pentagons, and pentagrams from this collection of edges.

Great!

Did someone eat it in the meantime?

We certainly ate a few marshmallows along the way. And the model didn't survive the night.
