#MathArtChallenge Day 4: Hyperbolic Geometry

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: Fold your very own Hyperbolic Plane from a simple piece of paper!

MATERIALS NEEDED: A square piece of paper. Youtube instructional video below!
