One Cut

What? We are learning to fold the paper to create different shapes using only one cut.

Why? This will develop our trial and error problem solving strategy.

How? I’ll be able to use my best effort and knowledge of symmetry and 2D shapes to work out how to create different shapes by folding the paper and only cutting once.

Can any shape with straight sides be made by folding a single piece of paper and by making a single complete cut?
