Marriott Ballroom 3/4 (Marriott Downtown)
Lead Speaker:
Jane A. Whitmire

Eüler's formula is true for regular platonic solids. It turns out, rather beautifully, that it is true for pretty much every polyhedron. The speaker will guide participants through a lesson that prompts students to discover these properties using computer software and the PolyPackPlus. A complementary handout will outline activities.
