I found Project Origami: Activities for Exploring Mathematics in my university’s library the other day and quickly FUBAR’d (folded-up beyond all recognition) the couple sheets of paper I had with me at the time. I showed the book to a couple friends who have studied some topology, and we looked at one project with the […]

I am working on a project for class about the mathematics behind origami and write now I am looking into what is and is not constructible. I’ve gotten to the definition of origami constructible points which says the following: The set of origami constructible points $P_0$ is defined as: $P_0=\{P|(0,0),(0,1) \in P$ and $P$ is […]

I am working on a project about Mathematics and Origami. I am working on a section about how origami can be used to solve cubic equations. This is the source I am looking at: http://origami.ousaan.com/library/conste.html I understand the proof they go on to explain about how the slope of the crease line is the solution […]
