Paper Plate Origami Workshop
To learn origami, you must fold it. Inherent in all of the folding is the wonderful world of transformational geometry. In this workshop, students will build math models such as a regular tetrahedron, an octahedron, and other Platonic solids simply by folding paper plates. They’ll also make a soccer ball (a truncated icosahedron) using paper plates. This workshop will combine geometry, art, and fun!
Materials: Students will need 50 or more inexpensive paper plates (the kind that grease can leak through, NOT the plastic-coated kind), clear tape (such as Scotch tape), a ballpoint pen (even an empty one will suffice), and a 12-inch or 30-cm ruler.
Live Classes: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, December 21, 22, and 23, 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time
