There are an infinite number of regular polyhedra??

hi,

Iam new to this forum so hope u peolpe can help. I am in my first year of a 4 yr university course training to be a primary/elementary school teacher.

I have beeen given the statement.. 'there are an infinite number of regular polyhedra'

The statment is said by an 8 yr old child. My task is to identify what is wrong with the statement, and how i would explain to the child the correct statement/ what i could show to the child to make them realise this statement is wrong, ansd the correct course of action to put them on th e right track.

I have been told by my maths teacher the statement is incorrect, but that is all the information i have been given, i dont even know what a rugular polyhedra is!!!

Hope sumone on this forum can help???

Thanks
