I regularly teach in Western New England's
Master of Arts in Mathematics for Teachers (MAMT) program. If you are a middle- or high-school math teacher in the Pioneer Valley area of Massachusetts, you should definitely check us out!
News! I have been awarded a 3-year research grant by the National Science Foundation's Directorate of Mathematical Sciences. The title is Configuration Spaces of Rigid Origami.
In the Spring 2022 semester I am teaching
MATH 421-02 Real Analysis, TThr 11:00am-12:20pm
And for the 11-week Winter 2022 graduate term:
MAMT 574-52 Origami in Mathematics and Education, MW 6:00-7:50pm (Eastern Time Zone)
In the Fall 2022 semester I am teaching
MATH 306-01 Linear Algebra, TThr 11:00am-12:20pm
MATH 375-01 Creative Problem Solving, TThr 2:00pm-3:20pm
And for the 11-week Fall 2022 graduate term:
MAMT 540-51 Calculus Revisited, MW 6:00-7:50pm
My undergraduate courses are all being taught in-person, while our graduate MAMT class are being conducted online (synchronously).

There are a lot of things on this site. As it's grown they've gotten all inter-mingled and some of the links go in circles. Below is a list of the main things here, but feel free to explore!
- Origami Math Pages
LOTS of stuff there, including diagrams of models, tutorials, animations,
a bibliography, and links. Check it out! (Note, though, that many parts are outdated and need to be revised.)
- Origami Model Gallery
- Every day is Halloween! Flapping Bat
- Origami CD Case PDF Diagrams, GIF
This has been a very popular model. Some folks at Michigan Engineering
Software and Hardware put together a script that lets you type in
song titles and will print them out onto paper that is ready to
be folded into the case. It's at www.papercdcase.com
- Information on the APA imagiro
- Origami, Plain and Simple by Robert Neale and me in 1994, but now only available as an ebook. It contains lots of simple origami models.
- Russian Origami by Sergei Afonkin and me in 1998, now only in ebook format. It contains many simple origami models created by Russian paper folders.
