Fun with magnets!

0th iteration of the Sierpinski’s tetrahedron

1st iteration

2nd iteration

2nd iteration, different angle

Trimmed away the golden tips

Trimmed away more

Different angle. Does the shape look familiar?

Added support struts. It’s an octahedron now!

Truncated the octahedron into a, well, truncated octahedron. I think the colours look cute.

This is the ‘mess’ I made while trimming and truncating

dotetracontahedron:

The greatest common divisor of two whole numbers is the greatest number that divides the others. For example, the greatest common divisor of \(6\) and \(8\) is \(2\), because \(2\) divides both \(6\) and \(8\) and there exists no greater number to do the same. We can use such number to simplify…

Oh wow! That’s the same method I’ve learnt in my Algebra lectures this year :)
