60 pieces and a challenge. What can you make and how many of the pieces can you use creating skeleton polyhedra?

### Plaited Origami Polyhedra

##### Stage: 2, 3 and 4 Challenge Level:

These models have appeared around the Centre for Mathematical Sciences. Perhaps you would like to try to make some similar models of your own.

### Platonic and Archimedean Solids

##### Stage: 2, 3 and 4 Challenge Level:

In a recent workshop, students made these solids. Can you think of reasons why I might have grouped the solids in the way I have before taking the pictures?
