Origami for Beginners
- Instructor Dr. Rachel McAnallen
- Code MTH71
- Student Ages 8-13
Mathematical or modular origami is folding many pieces of paper in the same manner and then putting them together to make a polygon or polyhedron. The folds can be simple or complex, and putting the pieces together can be a maddening puzzle. If students have perseverance and stay in the struggle, they will leave each session with a beautiful model to display.
