3D Origami Flower Demo for the Lot 8 Summer Window • Chloe Dao Good afternoon everyone! I just wanted show y’all the new Lot 8 summer window we have been working on. I wanted to do a very bright colorful window for the store and I found this origami technique and fell in love with the flower it made. The written directions were kind of confusing but I figured it out after a few times. So I thought I would demonstrate how simple it really is and how beautiful the out come will be! Each flower we made takes 5 pieces of paper and each half circle takes 6 flowers, so in all we folded 1440 pieces of paper! Hope you love it as much as I do! VRML Models of Modular Origami Modular Origami VRML Models Modular origami involves folding several identical or similar pieces (called units), which are then joined, usually without glue. Although I prefer single-sheet origami, some modular models are extremely attractive and elegant, not the least in the mathematical sense. Most modular units are fairly simple to fold; however, assembling some models can be quite difficult, since some units cycle or "penetrate" one another. Static diagrams and pictures are often not enough to solve placement ambiguity; in this case, assembly is greatly eased if a finished model is available for reference. These VRML ("virtual reality") models are intended as an aid to folders who didn't yet finish or don't have at hand a "real" instance of those remarkable origami creations. If your browser shows the models as text, you might have to install a plug-in or separate viewer. Copyright © 2002 Carlos A.
Origami Maniacs: Home The Educational Benefits of Origami By George Levenson Informed Democracy / Sadako Project Reprinted with permission of author Origami is the Japanese art of paper folding. It literally translates as ori (folding) gami (paper). Educational Benefits of Origami Behavioral Skills Cooperative Learning A Link to Math Cognitive Development Multi-cultural Awareness Community Building Behavioral Skills: Origami is an example of "schematic learning through repeatable actions". Cooperative Learning: Origami is well-suited to working with a classroom of 30 or more students. A Link to Math: Transforming a flat piece of paper into a three dimensional crane (or other origami figure) is a unique exercise in spatial reasoning. Cognitive Development: Through the actual folding, children use their hands to follow a specific set of steps in sequence, producing a visible result that is at once clever and pleasing.

meubles en carton marie krtonne Dixie Cup Spherical Dodecahedron All you need is a glue gun and 140 5 oz. Dixie Cups to achieve this rigid erection! Make several - then show off your amazing balls to friends and family! Then show them the thing you made out of 140 Dixie Cups! These Dixiespheres exhibit icosahedral symmetry, but other kinds are possible as well - I've included pictures of other Dixie Cup spherical constructions. I'd love to see any new ones you can come up with (especially if they exhibit some sort of symmetry), and I'd love to hear about how you use your Dixiespheres. The Dixiesphere is composed of twenty spherical-hexagonal 7-cup modular units, which you will construct first.
