Mathe-gami

Flapping bird

7th February 2015, Sat (2pm – 4pm), Age: 9-12 years old.

Mathe-gami focuses on mathematics through an “active experience”. Through the art of paper folding we open a new perspective for students to discover the mathematical relationships. For example by studying the crease patterns a student is able to understand better the intrinsic relationship between angles and lines. This simplifies the learning of geometry and builds an experiential base for further learning. Paper folding also offers an opportunity to illustrate ideas such as motion, transformation geometry which are standard fare in the mathematic curricular. Through Mathe-gami we aim to harness all these advantages in paper folding to help strengthen the understanding of mathematics for aspiring students.
