Abstract

In this workshop participants will observe the complexity generated by the interaction of two simple systems; a randomly created two dimensional black and white design and a three dimensional folding pattern. The supplied pre-scored paper guides both the 2D drawing component and the 3D folding component of the activity. Participants decorate and fold the paper to produce a three dimensional form. The activity provides opportunities for the recognition and discussion of numerous mathematical and STEM concepts coupled with the challenge and joy of making.
