Problem C1

Constructions will vary.

Problem C2

Answers will vary depending on the construction, but in general, structures whose surfaces are defined by quadrilaterals will be less sturdy than those whose surfaces are defined by triangles.

Problem C3

Answers may vary, but as we've learned, triangles are more rigid than quadrilaterals. Similarly, using a wide base and building "up" with triangles is the best approach. Builders find that if you want a square- or rectangular-shaped building, you must build triangular supports into the "walls."
