The Camels Four tasmanian camels traveling on a very narrow ledge encounter four tasmanian camels coming the other way. As everyone knows, tasmanian camels never go backwards, especially when on a precarious ledge. The camels didn't see each other until there was only exactly one camel's width between the two groups. How can all camels pass, allowing both groups to go on their way, without any camel reversing? Show Hint Show Solution Hint: Use match sticks or coins to simulate the puzzle. Solution: First a camel from one side moves forward, then two camels from the other side move forward, then three camels from the first side move forward etc... etc... 2. Three men in a cafe order a meal the total cost of which is $15. Now, each of the men effectively paid $4, the total paid is therefore $12. Show Solution 3.

BOS academic : Folding angles of 30 and 60 degrees Folding angles of 30 and 60 degrees by Ian Harrison For those of us who fold paper regularly, creating angles of 90o and 45o is almost second nature. We create a right angle by folding an edge, or a crease, back on itself, and we can bisect a right angle (or any other angle) by bringing the folds/edges that form the two arms of the angle together, and creasing between them. The method of constructing angles of 60o and 30o by folding is based on the symmetry of an equilateral triangle - one that has three edges of equal length. The longest edge of the right-angle triangle that is half the equilateral triangle - its hypotenuse in the language of geometry - is one edge of the original triangle and therefore has length 2 units. The shaded triangle in the right-hand diagram above is an example of the half equilateral triangle described above. Folding the other (right-hand) corner across, so that two raw edges lie together, bisects the angle of 60o on the right into two angles of 30o each.

Huzita-Justin Axioms At the First International Meeting of Origami Science and Technology, Humiaki Huzita and Benedetto Scimemi presented a series of papers, in one of which they identified six distinctly different ways one could create a single crease by aligning one or more combinations of points and lines (i.e., existing creases) on a sheet of paper. Those six operations became known as the Huzita axioms. The Huzita axioms provided the first formal description of what types of geometric constructions were possible with origami: in a nutshell, quite a lot was possible! The six Huzita axioms. The six axioms are shown to the right. Solve all quadratic, cubic, and quartic equations with rational coefficients; Trisect an arbitrary angle; Construct cube roots, including the famous problem of "doubling the cube"; Construct a regular N-gon for N of the form 2i3j(2k3l+1) when the last term in parentheses is a prime (a so-called Pierpont Prime); Hatori's seventh axiom. Hatori describes his discovery on his web site.

Origami Cross « Easy Origami Crafts This is a simple model created from a single, long and narrow strip of paper. Quilling paper works well if y ou happen to have that on hand — it’s often available at craft stores like Michael’s as well as online. But you can use any kind of paper that is available in large enough sheets to let you cut a strip that is 13-15″ long and 1/2 to 5/8″ wide. I like to use paper that is a different color on each side even though only a small square of the “wrong” side shows up in the final model. I hunted down instructions in order to make these for my classmates at the close of a recent Bible class at our church. Here are the Origami Cross step-by-step instructions with photos: I used a piece of paper about 15″ long and just over 1/2″ wide. 1. Though typically it is recommended that you fold on a hard flat surface, at this point I think it is easier to pick the whole piece up. 4. 6. 8. 12. & 13. 14. 18. 20. 23.

Spiral Flower Tutorial Good evening fellow bloggers! Today I'm going to take a few minutes to post a quick tutorial on how to make spiral flowers. I recently learned how to do this in a class I took at my local scrapbook store. During this class I made my very first canvas! So let's get started. First your supplies...you'll need scraps of patterned paper in various square sizes. This step is optional. Once the paper has dried--cut out circles from the square pieces of carstock. Starting from the outside of the circle start cutting in a spiral fashion all around the circle until you get to the center. In the end, this is what you should have. This step is optional. Before beginning to twirl your flower make sure that the pattern you want to be the face of the flower is facing you. Here's a screen shot of the flower after I've coiled it completely. Once you have coiled the flower completely, remove the tweezers. This is what you'll end up with. Uncoil the flower to your liking. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.

Basics of Quilling - Decorative Crafts Step 1: Cut Paper Strips Quilling is most often done with 1/8"- (3 mm) wide strips of paper. Beginners will find that ¼"- (6 mm) wide strips are easier to handle, and younger children will do best with ½" to 1" (12 - 25 mm) wide strips. Tip: As an aid in cutting strips, download and print a paper strip cutting guide on colored or white computer paper. Step 2: Winding Coils There are over thirty basic quilling shapes. To wind a coil, you will need a round toothpick and a strip of paper. Moisten your thumb and index finger. Tip: If you can't find a round toothpick to use as a winder, wrap a little masking tape around a square toothpick. Step 3: Sizing and Gluing Coils Skip this step if you are making an open coil, one of the scrolls (heart, V, or S), or the V. Spread out a sheet of wax paper to put your glued coils on. Your coils can be sized more easily by using a sizing aid. Step 4: Shaping Coils Follow these instructions for making eight basic coil shapes: Closed: Wind a strip to the end.

Kids Games Stamping With Blue Moon Creations: Iris Folding-Instructions and Video Tutorial Iris Folding Iris folding is a paper craft technique that involves folding strips of colored paper in such a way to form a spiraling design. The center of the design forms an iris -- similar to the shape of the iris of a camera lens. Iris folding originated in Holland. Designs initially were made using patterned paper cut from the inside of envelopes. Any light weight paper, such as scrapbook paper, origami paper, wrapping paper, the inside of envelopes, pages of magazines or even ribbon can be used. Iris Folding can be used as the front of a greeting card, as a scrapbook embellishment or on numerous other paper crafting projects. Supplies for iris folding include a pattern, strips of colored paper, permanent adhesive, cutting tools and a temporary tape such as painters tape. Iris folding always begins with a pattern.
