The art and technique of origami provides a surprising range of tools for explaining complicated mathematical concepts. Based on years of experience, the author has created an entertaining workbook that can be used in a variety of mathematics classes to visualize the solutions to mathematical problems. Using origami, learn about: dividing a length into equal nths: (Fujimoto Approximation); solving cubic equations; bucky balls and phizz units; impossible crease patterns; Gaussian curvature… Expand
Origami as a Tool for Exploring Properties of Platonic Solids
This workshop will elaborate how to introduce students (upper elementary and high school students, age 14-18) to Platonic solids and their properties through origami activities. Some of the importantExpand
Form and art of closed crease origami
We show some origami models appeared for the first time as student projects in Bauhaus around 1930. The same models are studied today by mathematicians and structural engineers for its geometric andExpand
Origami, geometry and art
ABSTRACT The purpose of this paper is to describe the mathematics that emanates from the construction of an origami box. We first construct a simple origami box from a rectangular sheet and thenExpand
Box Full of Mathematics
The purpose of this paper is to describe the mathematics that emanates from the construction of an origami box. The design of this box was inspired by the design of a traditional origami masu box. WeExpand
Mathematical thinking and origami
The purpose of this paper is to describe the mathematics that emanates from the construction of an origami box. We first construct a simple origami box from a rectangular sheet and then discuss someExpand
A Method for Designing Crease Patterns for Flat-Foldable Origami with Numerical Optimization
Origami is the art and science of making various shapes by simply folding a sheet of paper. When origami is studied as a geometrical problem, it is often assumed that the origami is folded flat. ThisExpand
Mathematical art and artistic mathematics
ABSTRACT The purpose of this note is to describe the mathematics that emanates from the construction of an origami box. We first construct a simple origami box from two rectangular sheets and thenExpand
Kinematics of Origami Structures with Creased Folds
TLDR
This chapter presents a kinematic model for origami based on the following assumptions: folds are straight creases, planar faces bounded by the folds and the sheet boundary are rigid, and these faces do not stretch or bend. Expand
Introduction to Active Origami Structures
Origami, the ancient art of paper folding, has inspired the design and functionality of engineering structures for decades. The underlying principles of origami are very general, it takesExpand
RIGID ORIGAMI VERTICES : CONDITIONS AND FORCING
We develop an intrinsic necessary and sufficient condition for single-vertex origami crease patterns to be able to fold rigidly. We classify such patterns in the case where the creases areExpand
