    Final Project Ideas

    My project is in the early stages and is still pretty vague. It is for my Foundations of Geometry class, and I wanted to do something with triangles of Geometry, i.e., euclidean.
    What are some ideas that I could narrow in on?
    Also, what would be a great visual or visuals I can create or use? Thanks for the help!

    Now that's a useful post ...

    For the visuals, I don't know but there exists a strange building in a spheric shape that is built only with triangles, like a regular dodecahedron but with many triangles ... I forgot the name though, maybe it could be interesting ?

    Try Federation Square in Melbourne, Australia.

    It's a tessellation made of Right-Angle Triangles.

    If you want to consider triangles forming a 3-dimensional solid, you could look at an icosahedron.
