30 Cubes on a Rhombic Triacontahedron
(Proceedings pages 317–322)
A cube is placed on each face of a rhombic triacontahedron (RT).
In the cluster of 30 cubes produced in this manner, the cubes are
connected at their vertices. With the use of physical models and
the computer software Wolfram Mathematica, we study the possible
geometrical features and relationships that can be associated with
this geometrical sculpture. The purpose of this article is to
introduce a method which is suitable for teaching a number of
concepts by association to a single object.
