Origami

Origami is an art of paper folding. This technique can be utilised in teaching various mathematical concepts.It is known that when we fold a paper, a crease is formed. On that crease a line segment of desired length can be drawn. And by folding that paper again, in such a way that the extreme points of the line segment concides,one can get the mid point of the line segment.Because this technique is based on "working with hands" domain, so the learning of a concept is maximum .The students can visualise the theoritical geometrical concepts taught in the classroom .
Nearly everyone has made paper airplanes or tried origami when we were children. Take these memories further when you download dozens of 3D-Papercraft projects for free.
