The #MathArtChallenge is just a fun, simple way to engage our brains during this time of unease. All tasks are low tech: paper, pencil, maybe string. Nothing fancy. I would LOVE to see what you come up with. Post on social media with the hashtag #MathArtChallenge!
THE CHALLENGE: If you have a nerd in your life, they’ve probably introduced you to Möbius strips. If you haven’t been introduced, my apologies for having failed you this far.
1) Take a strip of paper
2) Make a half-twist
3) Tape together
How many edges?
Then cut down the middle.
Then if you want to get really crazy, get yourself a separating zipper and some sewing materials and head on over to http://woollythoughts.com/mobius.html
Reveal below, but only watch if you’ve played first!
