### 5 Reasons Why Origami Improves Students' Skills | Edutopia- 59 views

• origami
• This art form engages students and sneakily enhances their skills -- including improved spatial perception and logical and sequential thinking.
• Here are some ways that origami can be used in your classroom to improve a range of skills:

• Geometry
• According to the National Center for Education Statistics in 2003, geometry was one area of weakness among American students.
• Origami has been found to strengthen an understanding of geometric concepts, formulas, and labels, making them come alive.
• Thinking Skills
• Origami excites other modalities of learning. It has been shown to improve spatial visualization skills using hands-on learning.
• Fractions
• Folding paper can demonstrate the fractions in a tactile way.
• Problem Solving
• Often in assignments, there is one set answer and one way to get there. Origami provides children an opportunity to solve something that isn't prescribed and gives them a chance to make friends with failure (i.e. trial and error).
• Origami is a fun way to explain physics concepts. A thin piece of paper is not very strong, but if you fold it like an accordion it will be.
• Researchers have found that students who use origami in math perform better.
• STEAM
• While schools are still catching up to the idea of origami as a STEAM engine (the merging of these disciplines), origami is already being used to solve tough problems in technology.
• Additionally, the National Science Foundation, one of the government's largest funding agencies, has supported a few programs that link engineers with artists to use origami in designs. The ideas range from medical forceps to foldable plastic solar panels.
•
Origami, the ancient art of paper folding, has applications in the modern-day classroom for teaching geometry, thinking skills, fractions, problem solving, and fun science.

"Progressions Documents", the documents which outline specific mathematical learning progressions upon which the Common Core State Standards were based. If you're in a state that teaches these you should definitely find some time to read through them. If you are a teacher elsewhere, it can't hurt to understand these progressions.
