“Origametria – Using Origami as a Tool to Teach Geometry” is an 8-minute film that introduces a teaching program run by the Israeli Origami Center (IOC). Each week throughout the school year, 10,000 children in 70 schools study ‘Origametria’, taught by 40 specially trained teachers. The film features interviews with School Principals and with teachers of math in schools that use the ‘Origametria’ program, and includes much footage of ‘Origametria’ in the classroom.

This short film is included as an Additional Feature on the full Between the Folds, which we watched recently. I never knew origami can be used a tool to teach Mathematics. A simple square can be transformed into an extraordinary piece of work – be it a Science or Art – it is breathtaking.
