Spring 2000

Ileana Streinu

Model: Tuesday, March 28, 2000.

Duality and mini-presentation: Tuesday, April 4, 2000, in class

- Construct a 3d model of a convex polyhedron (your choice, but please do not all do the cube or tetrahedron!).

Since this is practice for the final presentation, you can use whatever form of presentation you feel more comfortable with. It can be done using just plain blackboard and chalk, or using an overhead projector (just let me know ahead of time so that I bring one to class), or from computer slides (e.g., html files, Powerpoint - whatever). You can include an applet, if you find one on the web illustrating your algorithm.

I also ask you to write the main ideas in the form of an HTML file, and draw the pictures in Cinderella. Link it from your web page. If two students are assigned the same algorithm, they both should do it, separately: this is meant as individual work.
