Here are the rarely updated resources, links, and random musings of a Mathematics and STEM teacher.
Here’s a doc if you would like to learn more about this process. Give it a try for yourself!
Use @geogebra to design the crease pattern for a basic paper airplane. Then import the SVG into the https://origamisimulator.org/.
This is an excellent exercise for students. It actually took me a few edits to get it just right.
Today we will try the Origami Windmill Base. Planning to to less direct instruction, now that they have gone through the process and used the tools. Hoping to empower the students as independent learners, then as teachers of each other.3
Going to try a little different workflow with the Paper Airplane / Origami Simulator. Instead of Construction tools in @GeoGebra, Ss will use Coordinate Tables in @Desmos. The results are equally satisfying. Curious to see what the students have to say.4
