This slide presentation is essentially an exploration of six basic families of polyhedra: the Deltahedra, the Platonics, the Archimedeans, the Catalans, the Prisms and Antiprisms, and the Fullerenes. All the forms have been constructed with a constant edge length. All the forms have a serrated pattern at each edge to emphasize the joint. All the forms have been color coded. Each face has math information about the particular polyhedron.
