Origami Design: Materials for Classrooms

meteachingAlmost all of computational origami is intimately related to geometry, both intuitively and mathematically. But there’s also a lot of algebra, trigonometry, and even number theory and discrete mathematics involved in many concepts. For specific examples, see the student worksheets designed to accompany the GardenEDU Origami Design Videos.
