Hi,

What does the pieces look like, if you want to divide the surface area of a sphere into equal shapes that score high on symmetry?

For two pieces - you slice it down the middle.

But what about three and more pieces?

What is the procedure for doing this? Any good links to graphical representations?

regards, Paul
