Bridges 2011 Workshop Paper
Folding Your Way to Understanding
(Proceedings pages 671–678)
The goal of this paper is to describe how modular origami can be
utilized in a geometry classroom not only to enhance student
understanding of two-dimensional concepts, but also as a tool for
three-dimensional problem solving. All participants in this workshop
will create a Sonobe unit and explore the relationship between the
original paper and the final folded unit. Some workshop participants
will create more Sonobe units and put them together to form polyhedra.
The other participants will be charged with finding the volume of
the polyhedra that have been created.
