Question: How do I calculate the volume of a bird tetrahedron. I'm trying to find out to get extra credit. I came with this idea while making a origami tetrahedron.


P.S. Do you by any chance have instructions for origami figures. If you do, please send me some. Thanks!

Hi Joseph,

The volume of a tetrahedron is

1/3 (area of the base) height There is a more complete description in the answer to a previous question.

The only origami we have is a resource called Alison's Star Balls.
