This book draws on the authors’ substantial experience of using origami in the classroom and is designed to support you using origami when teaching mathematics. Origami is so much more than a fun “end of term” or enrichment activity: origami allows learners to explore important mathematical topics and solve problems.
This e-book offers practical advice on how to use origami with learners while offering opportunities to think creatively; justify decisions and opinions and deepen understanding. It includes starting points for many different topics, allowing learners to take responsibility for their own learning, explore areas of interest creatively and work collaboratively with others.
This downloadable version also includes additional whiteboard slides for use in the classroom.
Topics include: Simple fractions; Properties of 2D and 3D shapes; Angles and angle relationships; Tessellations and tiling patterns
