FroSoFold: The Art and Science of Origami
Ian Lim and Boris Perkhounkov
FroSoFold is a hands-on exploration of the mathematical and aesthetic principles behind origami, the art of paper-folding. We'll be walking students step-by-step through the construction of a variety of models every session ranging from the simple to the highly complex, as well as discussing the history and science behind this ancient art form. In the context of origami, your instructors will cover topics such as mathematical constructibility, graph theory, and more- no background required, but an interest in mathematical thinking is recommended! Paper will be provided for all in-class activities, and there will be additional paper for students to keep folding their own models even after the conclusion of the class. Warning: you may never see a sheet of paper the same way again.
