Opportunity at a Glance: Why does it seem easier to fold things into halves than into thirds? 8ths than 7ths? Surprisingly, there is a natural technique for folding things into odd fractions. The solution suggests a curious interplay between the powers of two and odd fractional amounts. During this master class (three sessions), we will start by playing (bring along something to fold, like a tie!) and then encounter a 100-year-old unsolved mystery. See below for session details.
- Sessions 1 and 2: Teachers learn from James Tanton
