The site “What’s on my blackboard?” has a great post on colouring dodecahedra, which I found very useful.

So far I have been sent ZERO solutions to the “Why those six pentagon edge-colourings” challenge. Watch this space!

CORRECTIONS
- I sometimes say things like “three colouring” without specifying that I’m talking about colouring the edges, not the vertices (which are the default option). But I hope it is clear from context.
- Let me know if you spot any other errors!
