Von Ein Kunde am 1. August 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is the 3rd edition(1981) since 1951. Although the printing is new, the contents are old. The angle represent in degree-minute-second. I think the best is help you to make 3-D figure such as Five tetrahedra in a dodecahedron in P.139. If you are a teacher and want to make some 3-D models which name are not known to many people instead of cube or sphere, I think this book is suitable.

HASH(0x8e2f7d50) von 5 Sternen An Enduring Classic Spanning Time and Ages 28. August 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
My copy of this classic is 37 years old, but the topics are timeless. The focus on physical models, makes the material accessible to even elemetary school students (that's when I first saw the book) but interesting to adults. The models cover 2 dimensional ones with contructing various curves and surface tesselations (think tiling a floor) to three dimensional ones like polyhedra (so that's what a soccer ball is!), conic and toroidal (doughnut) sections to mechanical models like linkages, machines for drawing curves (many of which are used in commerce)and on to rudimentary computing models. In a world where we're too quick to rely on a computer model, these physical representations offer students of all ages a grounding in the physical univerese, where we all actually live. After nearly 40 years, I continue to pull this book off the shelf and refer to it for models to reduce the complex and inaccessible ideas of life to simpler, intuitive models that invite exploration and produce delight and understanding in return

HASH(0x8df23c9c) von 5 Sternen An Unexpected Treasure 16. Januar 2014
Von Ward Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This title came up as a recommendation when I was searching for Wenninger's books on polyhedra. Those books are available, but rather pricey (over $60); I saw Cundy's book and bought it somewhat impulsively to console myself. What luck! It turns out to be much broader in scope than Wenninger's or other books on polyhedra; Cundy is using the word "model" very broadly to describe any number of concrete objects that can be used to "model" mathematical ideas. He describes (and provides clear diagrams) for making cutout cards to demonstrate geometric theorems; a mechanical device which can be used to demonstrate trigonometric functions; ways of drawing or using string to create conic sections, parabolas; and so on. He goes into tessellations, knot theory, and even describes plane figures by Von Koch and Sierpinski - and this written a couple of decades before Mandelbrot brought these figures to a wider audience and named them "fractals".
Cundy's chapter on polyhedra is quite thorough, and though he does give explicit instructions on building models, he is perhaps a little more academic than some readers would like. For a book solely focused on building polyhedral models, I'd recommend the reprinted "Shapes, Space, and Symmetry" by Alan Holden; I've had it for years and have used it to build several beautiful models. But Cundy's book offers the possibility of enjoying a broader range of mathematical ideas in the same concrete way as building polyhedra. Later chapters, for instance, describe ways of building mechanical devices to create complex three-dimensional curves, and the last chapter describes simple electrical circuits that embody principles of Boolean logic, demonstrating in turn the fundamentals of modern computing.
The first edition of this book was written in 1951; the second edition in 1961, and this, the third edition, was written in 1981. The language is fairly formal, and one gets the impression that the intended audience was high school or possibly college-level math teachers. If you're in that category, this book will help you tremendously in your work; in fact, it may inspire some of your students to develop, as I have, a lifelong interest in the elegant beauty of mathematics.

HASH(0x8e95c354) von 5 Sternen Clasic work-Highschool level 26. Oktober 2001
Von Henry E. Raduazo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The fact that this book is in it's third edition and its 14th printing speaks for it's self. It is one of the best general textbooks ever written on the subject of mathimatical models. Best of all it is written at Highschool level so that anyone can read and understand it.
HASH(0x8e3156a8) von 5 Sternen A wonderful educational resource. 25. Juni 2016
Von Charles Platt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This beautiful, wonderful, unique, amazing book fascinated me for many hours when I was young and trying to understand how the world works. It is an old-school British text in style. But it's clear and specific, and contains a huge amount of reference material in addition to the dozens of projects that you can build, many of them requiring only paper, scissors, and glue. From polyhedra to pentominoes, from hexaflexagons to linear linkages, the range is mind-boggling. Many of the models built by the authors used to be in The Science Museum in London; maybe they still are. Truly an amazing piece of work.

Though somewhat technical the book is extremely useful. It was in excellent condition and quickly sent.
