3D model description

This is about a 12-piece dissection of a hexagram. Starting from a regular hexagon, one can construct a hexagram by connecting the diagonals and further dissect the hexagram into 12 pieces as shown. The hexagram, so dissected, can be reassembled into 3 congruent small hexagrams.

This dissection can be a great project for K-12 students and teachers to learn about 3D design ideas. For better effect, the inner parts are 5mm in thickness; the outer pieces are 3mm high. The whole star has a radius of 60mm. Have fun!

STEAM educator, learning from and working with K-12 STEAM teachers to explore new ideas of teaching and engagement. I firmly believe ART is at the core of STEM learning or all human learning! I owe my ideas and designs to the hundreds of K-12 children and teachers and university professors I have had the pleasure of working with, in multiple disciplines-- math, science,engineering language arts, social studies, early childhood education and more! All mistakes, of course, are mine! There is no warranty or liability whatsoever implied or explicit behind the designs or ideas. They are all posted for their potential educational values.

When working with children, please strictly observe all safety and health procedures! Please refer to the NSTA safety guides: http://www.nsta.org/safety/.
