Geometric Model by A. Harry Wheeler, Two Angles with Their Sides Parallel but in Different Planes
To show relationships among planes and angles, A. H. Wheeler designed a series of what he called platform models. These had a rectangular base, usually attached to other rectangles and triangles.
In this platform model, a folded rectangle cuts two other rectangles perpendicularly. The model represents two angles with parallel sides in different planes. A paper tag reads: 266. A mark in pencil on the bottom of the model reads: March-3-1916.
