Modular Origami!
For this project, we decided on making some modular origami. At first, it was the terminology that drew me in – last semester, I took a number theory class where we worked closely with modular arithmetic. The modular in modular origami has a slightly different meaning – it refers to how the origami structures are…

Creating NonStandard Fair Dice
I like dice a lot. As someone who has played tabletop roleplaying games for over 5 years at this point, collecting various shiny math rocks is one of my greatest joys. Recently, I’ve toyed with the idea of making my own dice. So creating dice a little different from the norm seemed like it could…

First, it seems prudent to introduce the concept of a “flexagon” itself. According to Wikipedia, flexagons are, “…flat models… that can be flexed or folded in certain ways to reveal faces besides the two that were originally on the back and front.” The hexaflexagons we’re interested in are actually trihexaflexagons named as such due to…
