Origami Heaven

A paperfolding paradise

The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell



Sierpinski Qubes

  This section of the site is intended as a resource for teachers, and in particular for teachers of mathematics.

Although I have long been interested in mathematical paperfolds suitable for use in the classroom I am neither a trained teacher nor a mathematician. I therefore rely for information, advice and criticism on friends who are. Despite this, any mistakes in this material are, of course, my own. If you find one I would be grateful if you would let me know and I will correct it. I would also be grateful for any suggestions for additional notes. Thank you.
