Appreciation of Mathematics through Origami
Wares, Arsalan
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v44 n2 p277-283 2013
The purpose of this classroom note is to provide an example of how a simple origami box can be used to explore important mathematical concepts in geometry like surface area. This article describes how an origami box can be folded from a rectangular sheet of paper, then it goes on to describe how its surface area can be determined in terms of the dimensions of the rectangular sheet that was used to construct the box. (Contains 10 figures.)
