ABOUT THIS CLASS:

Mathematical or modular origami is folding many pieces of paper in the same manner and then putting them together to make a polygon or polyhedron. The folds can be simple or complex and putting the pieces together can be a maddening puzzle sometimes. If the participant has perseverance and “stays in the struggle,” they will leave each session with a beautiful model to display. 2e math expert Ms. Math will be there to encourage, inspire and troubleshoot along the way.
