One Cut Geometry – Day 11

One cut geometry is a fun challenge based on a theorem that every pattern (plane graph) of straight-line cuts can be made by folding and one complete straight cut. So it should be possible to make every single polygon from one cut on a folded piece of paper. You need scissors and a LOT of paper for this challenge. The recommendation is that the paper is square but I think you could use a regular piece of paper. Draw a scalene triangle in the middle of the paper. Can you cut the triangle with one cut? What shapes did you … Continue reading One Cut Geometry – Day 11
