Item description for Roses, Origami & Math by Toshikazu Kawasaki...

Offers step-by-step directions for origami activities to help students explore angles, area, fractions, and other math concepts.

Publishers Description
With an innovative and exciting approach to paper craft, ROSES, ORIGAMI & MATH stretches this ancient art to the limits. Designed for the classroom, this book uses advanced paper folding theory to reveal fundamental mathematical problems.
ROSES, ORIGAMI & MATH is divided into three sections with increasing degrees of difficulty:
The first chapter focuses on blocks and is designed to help the reader understand symmetry. Once mastered, solving the mathematical questions of origami should be easier. From the simple blocks, cherry blossoms, small houses, churches, and even a Greek temple can be created.
The second chapter goes on to explain techniques such as twist folding and stereoscopic twist folding that are used for making roses and are the basis for flat folding and crystal folding.
Finally, in the third chapter Kawasaki introduces the mathematics of origami. He explains it as an element of geometry that most readers learned in junior high school. Each section has exercises to help the reader better understand the mathematics of origami.
Included in ROSES, ORIGAMI & MATH are instructions for creating the author's masterpiece, the Kawasaki Rose Series. Fully illustrated with clear, step-by-step instructions, this book is fun and filled with useful techniques for mathematics education and for the ambitious layman.

Reviews - What do customers think about Roses, Origami & Math?

Much ado about nothing  May 12, 2008
80% of the book is focused on a very simple module and some variations, that allows you to do... cubes. And then entire chapters dedicated to how to link them and also detailing how to build a big house, a small house, a church, etc. etc. etc. The same stuff could be done easily in 10% of the book. If someone is interested in this kind of origami, then better buy "Unit Origami" from Tomoko Fuse.

The rose section is Ok, well explained and detailed (10% of the book)

The math section is hard, not well introduced and not very clear.

Summary-> get the Kawasaki rose (very nice, by the way) from any other book. You will get the same profit, and you will save money.
Great relax  Feb 25, 2006
