Teaching Mathematical Thinking Through Origami

This particular website offers up some ways to use origami to teach mathematical thinking.
Many people find doing origami relaxing, and others find it can be even a fine group activity to while away many pleasant hours. Created by Daniel Meyer, Jeanine Meyer, and Aviva Meyer, this site includes a background essay on this art, a set of teaching strategies for incorporating origami into the classroom, and some sample models. The “Teaching Strategies” area is a good place to look after reading the background essay, and users should also make use of the "Origami Sources" area, as it features external links to other origami sites.
