Drag the mouse to rotate the tetrahedron. Use the right button to remove and put back individual faces.

Tetrahedron (tetra = 4 in Greek) is one of the five Platonic solids, the other being cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, icosahedron. Tetrahedron is a triangular pyramid. With 4 faces, 6 edges, and 4 vertices it confirms to the Euler's theorem: 4 - 6 + 4 = 2.
