Origami, the art of paper folding, has fascinated and intrigued people of all ages for millennia, including our very own students. Accessible to all, requiring only a sheet of paper, new, used, or recycled, origami in the classroom offers a unique and motivating way to teach math and science concepts and problem solving, encourage creativity and inventiveness, and expose students to other cultures.
