Origami and Mathematics

Recently I had the horrendous realization that I’ve lost whatever little origami skills that I once possessed. I was trying to entertain a bored child on the plane who speaks a little English, and I knew no German save “guten tag”. I thought I would fold a paper crane and I couldn’t!

Anyway, I attended an extremely good talk by Robert Lang about Origami and the connection with mathematics. A fifteen minute version is available here. (The first and last minutes are about the same as the talk, but I didn’t view the 13 minutes in between.)
