The winding number for closed curves and polygons in the Euclidean plane is generalized to polyhedra in three-space. The winding number allows us to decide whether a point is in the interior or exterior of a closed polygon/polyhedron. Polygons and polyhedra need not be convex and self-intersections are allowed.
