Its very simple, form a square and put two sticks diagonally, since all the rectangles inside will be measuring 90o in angle, they all will be of same size.

make a flat triangle with 3 matches.

then with each match remaining (3 of them0 place an end in each angle

and form a type of pyramid bringing the other three ends together.

You now have a 3d shape which has 4 equal triangles
