Polygonal Oddities


This is a crazy collection and categorization of mathematical oddities.

Here, the word oddity has a specific, technical mathematical meaning:  an oddity is a figure with at least one line of symmetry that is made up of an odd number of copies of some polygon.

I’ve never heard of oddities before, and I learned a lot of new vocabulary words while exploring this page:  polyform, hexapent, and quinquerotary, to name a few!
