Description:

The purpose of this lab is to enable students to compute the perimeter and area of equilateral triangles, and to make the connection between area of triangles (2-D) and the surface area of pyramids (3-D). Furthermore, a secondary purpose to this lab is to allow students to construct -- with contributions from everyone -- a piece of art full of mathematical meaning and implications (from geometry, algebra, and even calculus!)
