Origami: It's Not Just For Squares

David Masunaga 

January 2002


Explore geometric principles by using a specialized form of origami, called rectangular origami. Origami is the Japanese term for paper folding (ori, a folding, plus kami, or gami, meaning paper). Most origami constructions are paper models of objects that vary from animals to spacecraft and that are constructed from square sheets of paper. However, a genre of origami uses paper from such common rectangular sources as newspapers or dollar bills.
