Course Description

Flexagons can be described as twisted strips made of folded paper that reveal their properties when they are flexed. This course will cover the history of flexagons and their naming conventions. Learn how to make your own flexagons, and share them with the global community of learners. Mathematical fields such as graph theory and topology will also be explored. You'll also learn about Tuckermann diagrams, Mobius strips and other topics that can be used to analyze flexagons.
