The artwork of origami, or paper folding, is performed utilizing a sq. piece of paper to procure appealing figures of animals, vegetation or different standard figures. possible see that origami has hyperlinks with geometry. Creases and edges characterize strains, intersecting creases and edges make angles, whereas the intersections themselves signify issues. due to its manipulative and experiential nature, origami may perhaps turn into a good context for the educational and educating of geometry.
In this distinctive and unique booklet, origami is an item of mathematical exploration. The actions during this e-book vary from usual origami in that no figures of items outcome. fairly, they lead the reader to check the consequences of the folding and search styles. The experimental process that characterizes a lot of technology job may be famous during the booklet, because the manipulative nature of origami permits a lot experimenting, evaluating, visualizing, getting to know and conjecturing.
The reader is inspired to fill in the entire proofs, for his/her personal delight and for the sake of mathematical completeness. therefore, this e-book presents an invaluable, substitute technique for enhancing and making use of the theorems of highschool arithmetic.

Let HB = x and BG = y. By the Pythagorean Theorem on HBG, x2 + y 2 = (1 − y)2 . And therefore y= Since EAH and 1 − x2 . 2 (1) HBG are similar, HB : BG = AE : AH, or x : y = √ 1 : 2−x . 2 (2) Equations (1) and (2) together lead to the quadratic equation, √ √ 2 2 5 2 3x − 4 2x + 1 = 0.
