Hexaflexagon Fun

Thanks to Twitter and YouTube, I recently came to watch Vi Hart’s videos on hexaflexagons¬†(her YouTube channel¬†has some fascinating maths in it wrapped up in some very engaging and creative videos!).

A great idea for my Year 10 Maths class. Hence the essential question for the next lesson…

And some flexagation fun ensued!

If you haven’t made one, give it a try! I found this tutorial helpful as it didn’t rely on any templates, just some logical folds.

Now I just need to get some burritos and make a hex flex mex for lunch!
