Mathematical Origami: Geometrical Shapes by Paper Folding
Origami is the art of paper folding without the use of either scissors or glue. Each of the beautiful and fundamental mathematical shapes described in this book is achieved by folding sheets of standard A4 paper. It is remarkable what can been done and David Mitchell gives clear step by step instructions for each. He has gathered together a most impressive collection which will amaze and interest mathematics teachers and other admirers of pure geometrical forms. Included: cube columbus cube tetrahedron icosahedron octahedron skeletal octahedron skeletal cuboctahedron skeletal cube rhombic dodecahedron rhombic pyramid rhombic tetrahedron rotating rhombic tetrahedron rhombic star dodecahedron outline dodecahedron transformation
