A really nice thing that happened this week

Earlier in the week my phone “pinged” because of this tweet:

Clicking through I learned that Joel David Hampkins hard turned the Fold and Punch and Fold and Cut projects into an amazing activity at his daughter’s school:

Math for nine year olds: fold, punch and cut for symmetry!

Hardly any of the projects we do involve any planning – in fact, they’d probably require two extra levels of planning to get to “fly by the seat of our pants” status. So, it was cool to see a long and incredibly well though out write up of this project, and especially cool to see where a professional mathematician took the project 🙂

I hope that people are able to take advantage of the wonderful write up by Hamkins – this is a tremendously fun project for kids!
