#MathArtChallenge Day 31: MÖBIUS

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!
