This page attempts to record what is known about Paperfolding Mathematics ie those paperfolds which are overtly mathematical in nature. Please contact me if you know any of this information is incorrect or if you have any other information that should be added. Thank you.

Anyone who is interested in obtaining more in depth information about the history of paperfolding from a mathematical perspective should consult the writings of Michael Friedman.
