MIT postdoctoral fellow Emily Peters discusses the Platonic solids, showing that there are only five of these special polyhedra.

Emily points out that at 01:05, she tells a lie! How many triangular faces does the octahedron have?

Conceived by Elisenda Grigsby, the Women In Mathematics (WIM) video series features women in math explaining some piece of math that interested them when they were in school. Often filmed on the spur of the moment, these videos showcase the diverse group of women working in mathematics today.
