In this workshop, participants will learn some of the connections between mathematics and origami. Participants will learn how to fold an equilateral triangle and then be given the challenge to prove why their folding method works. For example, you may have to fold the paper in half and then in half again in the other direction and then fold each half in half which demonstrates several times the idea of symmetry.
