Project Name : Honeycomb Mathematics
Theme Name : Mathematics in Everyday Life
An investigatory project related to the individual unit of honeycomb, where in four different possible structures i.e. two triangular bases, one square opening and one hexagonal opening were selected. After which their individual volume per unit surface shows that the hexagonal
opening structure has maximum volume for a given surface area. Therefore minimum (surface area) material and effort is required for construction but maximum storage capacity is obtained. Some applications of this structure are beehive shelter system for disaster
management and saving construction material in – Urban Hive as in Korea.
