Conics - The intersection curve of a double cone and a plane. Dandelin Spheres - Place two spheres snuggly in a cone. Next, place a plane between the two spheres such that the plane is tangent to the two spheres. The intersection of the plane and the cone is a conic. The points of tangency of the planes and the spheres are the foci of the conic. Desargues Theorem - Two triangles perspective from a point are perspective from a line. Cube Dissection - a cube can be dissected into three congruent Kammrath pyramids. Stereographic projection - This is an example of a projection of a sphere onto the plane. Images of circles on the sphere are circles on the plane. Another Stereographic projection A Truncated Cube - Slowly cut off the corners of a cube and observe what happens. A Truncated Tetrahedron - Slowly cut off the corners and observe what happens A cube from a tetrahedron Back to: Class Notes |
