Origami In Person
Origami is the art of folding paper. Traditionally, this paper is square, with color only on one side; however, modern origami encompasses non-square paper, multiple pieces of paper, and even paper money. It is a classic, elegant art form that embraces simplicity (yet the models can be complex!) and beauty. It was developed by the Japanese hundreds of years ago, and has been taken up by many around the world. By performing origami in public, people can see simple square pieces of paper become art, right before their eyes!
About Andrew Anselmo, Origami Artist
I have been folding, teaching, and giving away origami for over ten years. I have come up with many original pieces, and am most proud of my "Candy Wrapper Dragon," created explicitly for the independent movie of the same name. I am a member of OrigamiUSA, the largest origami organization in the United States, and have taught at the yearly OrigamiUSA convention in New York, at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, and at the Arlington Center for the Arts. Most recently, I have begun folding in public in Harvard Square, by invitation at Waterfire in Providence, RI, and at the New Bedford, MA WHALE Christmas festival. I can fold a wide variety of quick, fun, and interesting pieces; some of them include: various flapping birds, jumping frogs, butterflies, snakes, airplanes, bears, flowers, boats, flowers, fish, strawberries, kangaroos, and grasshoppers; I also can fold with US dollar bill.

    Teaching Tips
    ... VOCABULARY I. INTRODUCTION Our organization has grown in numbers and enthusiasm. When we meet, everyone is excited about learning origami. As our membership increases so does our need for teachers. This booklet has been prepared to encourage members to share through teaching. We have brought together the ideas of several experienced teachers. Their techniques, phrases, and simple tips may be helpful to our members during an origami class in their homes or at the Convention. It is our aim to build confidence in teachers, thus helping them enjoy their teaching experience. The booklet is divided into four sections. The first section highlights the goal of teaching origami. The next two sections are the collection of tips for the preparation before and during class. The last section is a list of words commonly used in origami. This origami vocabulary is offered to encourage the membership to use these terms while teaching. Many teachers agree that it is helpful when students can perform the series of folds needed to construct a base when the base is simply named. II. THE

    Traditional Chinese Paper Arts
    China, where paper was invented in the 1st century AD, (Han Dynasty) has a long history of paper arts and crafts. These include paper objects used for decoration as well as items used for ceremonial purposes. Frequently, these would be made from paper money, either real or the ceremonial "hell money". These arts are very similar to the Japanese art of origami. This page consists of two parts. The first part focuses on Chinese money folds and other figures made from traditional modular units. A second part focuses on Chinese paper cutting, especially the intricate cutting of the brilliantly colored figures in the Wei Xian county style.The third button takes you to some examples of modern money folds as practiced in the West, and links to other paper art resources.

    This is a traditional boat made from over one thousand modular units and measures about 18 inches in length. It was constructed by Carol Stevens, a Southern California teacher of Origami and other crafts. Carol learned this model from the Taiwanese grandmother of one of her students. Note that the bills used are not the gold or green .01 and .02 Yuan bills from the mainland, but are miniature replicas of U.S. dollars. The symbolic message remains the same however. It would perhaps be given to a person starting a new business to say, "May your golden ship come in!." It might also be presented as a Chinese New Year gift with a similar wish for prosperity in the new year.

Bonnette Activity Subject: Geometry LA State Standards: G-4-E, G-6-E, G-2-M, G-4-M and Art: CE-1VA-E6, CE-1VA-M6 Summary of Exercise: Students will construct a three dimensional geometrical model known as the Sonobe Unit. Students will follow along while the teacher demonstrates using SOAR Set-Up 3 (1X Stand and View). This construction will promote geometric concepts and communication in verbal, visual, tactile, and written formats. The students will use their math journals to write a description of the Sonobe Unit and illustrate each fold. Students may then construct more elaborate units and/or teach another student or class how to fold the Sonobe Unit. Materials: SOAR , TV, VCR, videotape, recycled telephone book paper, gift wrap paper, or old magazines cut into 6 or 8 inch squares (6 sheets per student) to practice before using good origami paper, popsicle sticks (to "crisply crease" each fold), Origami paper (various colors), and waxed paper Procedure: Setup the SOAR with the 1X lens using the stand on a flat surface. Teacher uses a 6 or 8 inch square of paper (recycled, waxed, or origami) to demonstrate each fold of the Sonobe Unit. The "Alphabet" of origami should be demonstrated before students start work on the Sonobe Unit. The teacher should be asking questions regarding geometric terms revealed with each fold of the paper. These may include terms such as: parallel, perpendicular, congruent, right angle, triangle, square, rectangle, etc.

    Origami Tips
    For Beginners
    Use thin and crisp paper. Origami paper (sometimes called kami) or photocopy paper will work. Don't use expensive paper at first. Read the book from beginning. You must be familiar with the symbols and basic folds. Learn before folding. Look at the diagrams carefully. Make sure you follow the sequence exactly as numbered. When lost, compare the diagram with the next one, and guess how to make it as described in the next diagram. If you can't figure out, begin again from the first step. Fold neatly. Make sure the corners and/or edges meet each other accurately and precisely. Don't make haste. Fold firmly. Fold on a solid surface and press on the creases with your fingers. Some folders use tools such as a folding-bone. Practice and practice each model. No one can fold it well at the first time. You can take a break when you feel tired or frustrated. Leave it until tomorrow. Enjoy origami!
    For Enthusiasts
    Wash your hands before you fold. It's important if you want to make a beautiful model. Imagine how your model will look like, and choose suitable paper. Choose paper according to the model; or choose a model according to the paper.

    What is origami?
    Origami , the Japanese name for the art of paper folding, comes from the Japanese verb oru (to fold) and the noun kami (paper). The word "origami" is now commonly used around the world. A finished origami figure is called a model , the method for folding a model is called a design , and drawn instructions for a model is called a set of diagrams . An origami artist is usually called a paperfolder The only requirement for origami is a piece of paper, making it one of the most accessible arts. Almost any paper may be used, but standard "origami paper" is thin, strong, and holds a crease very well. It is also usually white on one side and colored on the other side, and is cut into 15 cm squares (about 6 inches). Some origami artists also experiment with other materials, and have folded models out of cardboard, various types of cloth, wire mesh, sheet metal, and even sheets of pasta. The basic technique of origami is folding, and many complex folds have been developed. The simplest fold is the valley fold , where a flat piece of paper is folded towards the paperfolder. When this fold is unfolded, the crease line forms a valley shape. Closely related is the

    Historical Background of Origami
    Origami, the art of paper folding, is traditionally associated with Japanese culture. It originated, however, in first century A.D. China with the invention of paper. The forerunner of modern day origami served practical purposes for the Chinese, who made useful commodities such as vases, bowls, and boxes from folded paper. Almost 500 years after paper was invented, Buddhist monks brought the secret to Japan.
    The Japanese quickly integrated paper into everyday life, first using it in architecture and for ceremonial functions. With foundations in such formal usage, origami slowly evolved to become what we recognize today as Japanese paper folding. Passed from generation to generation by oral tradition between mothers and daughters, designs remained simple until about 1797 when the first written instructions for paper folding designs were published. It is interesting to note that prior to 1880 Japanese paper folding was known as orikata (folding exercises), but as designs changed to become more playful and complex, the name became origami (to fold paper).
    As origami entered the realm of creativity, as opposed to its original ideal of repetition of set designs, two men (Akira Yoshizawa and Sam Randlett) developed a system of lines and arrows that simplify written instructions. This system has been adopted worldwide and has opened the doors of paper folding to an unlimited audience. Generally starting with simple designs, origami books with Yoshizawa and Randlett's method systematically lead paperfolders from the novice stage to expert.

    96. Origami Paper Background
    By a sequence of folds, a flat piece of paper is turned into by Lillian Oppenheimer, Alice Gray, and Michael Shall who over time established origami USA.
    Origami is the art of paper folding. By a sequence of folds, a flat piece of paper is turned into a stylized animal, flower, box, or other recognizable object, generally 3-dimensional and often with moving parts or serving a utilitarian purpose. The final object is called a 'model'. Origami is associated with Japan, but it is practiced all over the world. The classical models include the water bomb, crane, and flapping bird. In recent times unit or modular origami, in which geometric constructions are built up from so-called modules, has become popular. Origami is both a craft and an art. Origami as practiced in the United States and elsewhere, has developed a certain culture, largely influenced by Lillian Oppenheimer, Alice Gray, and Michael Shall who over time established Origami USA . In this culture, everyone is potentially a teacher as well as a student; a high value is placed on sharing. Similarly, care is taken to giving credit to creators, people who add variations to models, teachers, collectors, and people who write down directions and diagrams. It is to be noted that the recommended practice in origami circles goes beyond the letter of the law concerning intellectual property. Certain attributes of the nature of origami and this culture provide the potential for its use in teaching (and doing) mathematics.

    The Screen Should Just be the Beginning
    I have always had a love-hate relationship with electronic technology. Sometimes I look around the computer lab and say to myself, "Look at this! How sick!" There we are, all of us under fluorescent lights, fingers a-clicking, each pair of eyes individually glued to it's special TV. I am among the worst. Sometime's after drawing a lot of pictures (of knots , for instance) I notice that my eyes feel like blazing sandpaper. I have been so intent on following the lines that I draw, bend, and move that I realize that I haven't been blinking! Like I said. How sick! No matter how snazzy the technology, how keen the materials, or how swell the content, educational software that merely glues kids to screens isn't all that great! It is much better if the technology is a source of ideas, puzzles or problems that stick with the user, so they can be taken away from the screen, and remain alive after the machine is clicked off. This isn't all that easy to do, and I'm not bragging that MegaMath does this to an outstanding degree. But we try.

    Origami is the art of folding paper. The word itself comes fro two Japanese words: "ori" - to fold and "kami" - paper. Many scholars believe that origami was first invented in China since the Chinese invented paper long before anyone else. However, the Japanese made paper less expensive and it was in Japan that the art form really took root and began to grow. Now people from all over the world fold every day!
