Part of video series The Fourth Dimension
Taught by IsAllAboutMath
M. C. Escher tells the adventures of two-dimensional creatures who are trying to imagine three-dimensional objects.
  • Who is M.C. Escher?
  • Who is Edwin A. Abbott?
  • What is Flatland?
  • Where can I find 2-dimensional projections of 3-dimensional objects and shapes?
  • What are cross-sections of 3-dimensional polyhedron?
  • What are platonic solids?
  • How can you recognize and identify polyhedron from their projections?
This lesson is a prelude to a look at the fourth dimension. It is a consideration of the third dimension by 2-dimensional beings, similar to the book Flatland by Edwin A. Abbott. M. C. Escher and his works are also discussed. 3-dimensional polyhedron such as a tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, icosahedron, and dodecahedron are analyzed as they pass through a 2-dimensional plane. Also shown are stereographic projections of the polyhedron on a 2-dimensional plane, and they are identified by their projections.
