Origami for Everyone
|Term||Summer Session 2021|
|Ages||10 & up|
|Instructor||Dr. Rachel McAnallen|
All origami begins with putting the hands in motion. Understanding something intellectually and knowing the same thing tactilely are very different experiences. To learn origami, you must fold it. Inherent in all of the folding is the wonderful world of transformational geometry. In this course, students will learn unit (or modular) origami. Modular origami is the process of folding many sheets of paper in the same manner and then putting the units together to make a solid geometric shape. Students will learn about the Platonic and Archimedean solids, along with their duals and stellations.
