PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Polygons and Polyhedrons - Math, Geometry

In "How To Celebrate Winter Solstice" we learn that Johannes Kepler was the Astronomer who discovered that the Earth follows an elliptical path around the sun marking the solstices and the equinoxes, thus discovering the “The Planetary Laws of Motion.”

He was also a Mathematician and classified everything polyhedron. Let’s learn a bit more about these interesting shapes that inspired Kepler! You will notice that polygons and polyhedrons have similarities, but one is flat (two-dimensional) and the other is three-dimensional.
