Instrument Name: Mathematical Model – Icosahedron


A colourful model representing an icosahedron. The model is made of triangular “plates” connected by wires at their vertices. It is similar in construction to 2016.mat.38. Each side is covered in a colourful pattern of triangles giving the model the appearance of representing a three-dimensional colour gradient.

Primary Materials: Metal


This model is marked with the number “3″.

Dimensions (cm): Longest dimension = 23 cm

Function: Pedagogical mathematical model.


Good: There is slight damage at the vertices.

Manufacturer: Unknown

Donated to UTSIC: No
