Mathematics Origami

This morning with a stack of blank, unused paper sitting right next to me, I was thinking about some new projects that I might be able to assign my students for next semester.  Then it popped into my mind… Origami!  I think an assignment on origami would be especially interesting to my students in art and design.  I am looking forward to seeing what students will create in the semesters to come.  By the way, below is a link to a related TED talk by Robert Lang.  It could serve as a good way to introduce an entire unit on this topic (to the right group of students).
